independent and dependent conjunctions by Evan Frey and Mir Dreyer
A clause contains a verb and a subject example: the goat screamed ,
as the cat jumped, he did a back flip and landed on its head
A dependent clause is a sentence that cant stand on its own and almost always leave you on a cliffhanger
an independent clause is a group of words that can stand on its own, and forms a complete thought.
Example: The beach is a lot of fun.
a subordinating conjunction is a conjunction that introduces a dependent clause, joing it to a main clause
examples would be: because, while, after
Since my dog ran away, I missed him. thx 4 waching... by
