Bipolar sentences are those that are structured in two groups, called periods or propositions , which are related to each other through a bilateral dependency and a link that unites them formally and semantically. If observed from a syntactic point of view, all these sentences correspond to compound subordinate sentences, with the exception of bipolar adversative sentences, which are compound coordinates.
In general, the links are of vital importance in this type of sentences since they create the link between the two propositions; some of the most prominent are therefore, since, because, however, more than, so that, if, but, although, etc.
