According to the section Compound Commands of the manual page, a compound 
command is one of 11 forms listed. However, as explained in the ALIASES 
section, a function definition ( function name [()] compound-command 
[redirection] ) is also a compound command.

Multiple other forms of compound commands are not documented, for example { if 
true; then echo x; fi }.
