"Good Question, phrases and clauses are needed in the English language because we need them to express what we are trying to say. "
"Hey Mr. Norman can you tell me why we use phrases and clauses in language?"
"We use semicolons when we need to separate two independent clauses with no conjunction. We use commas after a dependent clause before a FANBOY."
"Well, what about semicolons and commas?"
"While we're on topic lets talk about dependent and independent clauses. Dependent clauses are dependent on independent because they can't stand alone."
"And Independent clauses can stand on their own."
"You make me such a proud teacher."
"ouuuu, I know what the role of a subordinating conjunction does. It provides a transition between two ideas in the same sentence and shows how important the independent clause is."
I should get started on my paper,like right now. Because it's due Tuesday, I should brainstorm. I want to do my story on my sister, but I can't. Because I missed her this morning, she left. She left for Florida, even though it was far from us.
Semicolons are used by joining two independent clauses together. Ex: The dog bite me; I had to go to the hospital.
commas are used to separate clauses, phrases, and words. They mark a break in between different parts of a sentence. Ex: I love to eat apples, bananas, and grapes.
