Storyboard Text

  • Why does the English language need phrase AND clauses?
  • Because phrases add extra description and are never complete sentences. While on the other hand, clauses can be complete sentences, and also add description to sentences.
  • We need them both because they have different uses in our language. Semicolons are used to form a bond between two statements. Colons are used to separate a complete sentence and words that clarify the sentence. 
  • Why do we need to have semicolons AND colons?
  • Dependant clauses are 'dependent' on independent clauses because they have to be attached to an independent clause; they are not complete sentences on their own. 
  • A subordinating conjunction begins a dependent clause. 
  • What's the point of a subordinating conjunction?
  • I think I'll look at one more car before I leave. 
  • No, I want to look at what is out here first before it begins to rain.
  • I am just going to look at this car very quickly since it looks like it might rain. Then I am going to leave.
  • After we finish in here, I will show you our best selling car of the year.
  • Before you do that, let me show you what we have inside.
  • You use a semicolon if you have two independent clauses. For example: The man should have left the store before it began to rain; now he is stuck walking in the rain. 
  • You use a colon after a statement that is a complete sentence, and before a group of words that explain the sentence. For example: The man did the following activities: left his home, walked to the bus stop, rode the bus to the store, and walked home. 
  • I should've left earlier, before it began to rain.
