    • Clauses Identifying adjective, adverb, and noun clauses in a sentence.
      • A clause is a group of related words containing a subject and a verb .
      • It is different from a phrase in that a phrase does not include a subject and a verb relationship.
    • Independent clauses
      • A clause that can stand by itself and still make sense.
      • It can be its OWN sentence, or be part of a larger one:
        • Jerry wants to be the quarterback this week. (simple sentence)
        • Jerry wants to be the quarterback this week , but Jimmy thinks he will be . (compound sentence)
    • Independent clauses
      • By a comma and little conjunction ( and, but, or, nor, for, yet, and sometimes so ).
      • By a semicolon , by itself.
      • By a semicolon accompanied by a conjunctive adverb (such as however, moreover, nevertheless, as a result, consequently , etc.).
      • And, of course, independent clauses are often not connected by punctuation at all but are separated by a period.
    • Subordinate clauses
      • A clause that cannot stand by itself.
      • It depends on something else, an independent clause, for its meaning.
      • A subordinate clause trying to stand by itself would be a sentence fragment .
      • Subordinate clauses are sometimes called dependent clauses.
    • Subordinate clauses
      • Examples:
        • While the kangaroo crossed the road , the tourists stayed inside their cars.
        • The man who is coaching that team is my father.
        • What the team needs now is a championship!
      • Subordinate clauses can act as adjectives, adverbs or nouns.
    • Using Commas with clauses
      • TWO TYPES ~~~ Essential vs. Nonessential
      • Essential = necessary, no commas
      • Nonessential = extra info, use commas
        • Every player who hits a home run receives a trophy. ( Essential, no commas)
        • The players , who vary in age from eight to twelve , wear blue uniforms . (Nonessential, set apart by commas)

      • Whom/whomever
      • whose
      • which
      • What/whatever

      • It can do anything a noun can do:
        • Subject, Predicate Nominative, Direct Object, Indirect Object, Object of the Preposition.
    • Noun Clauses
      • Words that introduce noun clauses are:
        • How, if, that, what, whatever, when, where, whether, which, who, whoever, whom, whomever, whose, why

        • at least a mile every day.
    • Don’t forget the position rules!
      • If the clause begins the sentence= Adverb or Noun
      • If the clause follows a noun = usually Adjective
      • If the clause follows the verb = Adverb or Noun
