MAIN CLAUSES AND SUBORDINATE CLAUSES | Independent and Dependent Clauses

A clause is a group of words which contains a subject and a verb.

If a clause makes sense by itself, we call it a MAIN CLAUSE or an INDEPENDENT CLAUSE. AN INDEPENDENT CLAUSE has a subject and a predicate and can stand alone as a sentence.

A SUBORDINATE OR DEPENDENT CLAUSE also has a subject and a predicate, but it cannot stand alone as a sentence. Subordinate clauses are introduced by subordinating conjunctions: after, although, as, because, before, if, since, than, though. Unless, until, when, whenever, where, whereas, wherever, etc.

In this video, you will practice identifying INDEPENDENT CLAUSES and DEPENDENT CLAUSES. So, without further ado, Let’s Get Grammarous!🙌🙌🙌
