Storyboard Text

  • Oh hey there, I have a lot to tell you all today!  The English langauge needs phrases and clauses.
  • A phrase is a group of words together with no sudject or verb. A clause is a sentence with a subject and verb.
  • Phrases and clauses are a necessity to English language because all sentences would  be bland without our simple sentences. They also help with explaining things in shorter  sentences.
  • Next, dependent clauses depend on independent clauses because they aren't complete sentences, making it gramatically incorrect if it's by itself.
  • Oh really...
  • The order of the two clauses lets you know where you put the subordinating conjunction. Some of the conjunctions are: after,  although, until, unless, because and many more.
  • To make a sentence with a independent and dependent clause, you'll need a subordinating conjunction. A subordinating conjuction provides transition between ideas such as independent and dependent clauses.
  • They're always talking to the air all around town while they call me weird.
  • I'll stop talking to the air when y'all stop calling me weird.
  • Yes, actually. If you'll excuse me, I have to go feed my cat whenever he's done with his little pajama party.
  • Even though you are extremely weird, I will stop calling you that. There, happy?
  • As you're saying this right to my face, you're doing the same exact thing.
  •  You use a colon between independent clauses when the second sentence explains on the other sentence or when making a list. For example, "I went to the store and bought foods: peaches, carrots, breads and chocolate."
  • Finally, we have semicolons and colons. You use semicolons if you need to make a list of items already separated with commas, such as locations, names and dates.
  • That's all folks!
