What Is a Clause? Like…What Am I? Help! I’M Freaking out man!
The Basics  Phrase Clause Group of words that does not have a subject and a verb. A noun + verb …it may or may not be a sentence Example: My neighbor’s dog Example: My neighbor’s dog left me a present.
Independent Clauses ,[object Object],I don’t need you. I don’t need anybody!
Dependent clauses ,[object Object],How much money did you say you make? Because I cannot stand alone ,  I need you Daphne.
Caution! ,[object Object],[object Object]
How do we identify and use  dependent clauses?
Look for the subordinating conjunctions… ,[object Object],[object Object]
A as A after A   although W while W when U until B before B   because I if S since
[object Object],[object Object],We then join this clause with an  independent clause  to make a sentence.  Example: Although I was very sick,  I still managed to grade all of my students’ papers.

Editor's Notes

  1. So remember . . . Main clauses can stand alone as fully functioning sentences. Subordinate clauses depend for their sense on the main clause. They do not make sense by themselves because they are incomplete .
