Today’s Standard

1.3 Use subordination, coordination, apposition, and other devices to indicate clearly the relationship between ideas.

general definitions
General Definitions:
  • subordination:

below or less important.

Example: In the workplace, if someone is your subordinate they are below you in rank.

  • coordination:

equal in value; balanced.

Example: When you coordinate your shoes, you match them so they are equal.

subordination in english
Subordination in English:
  • subordination:

showing that one idea has less value by its placement in a sentence

If two simple sentences are closely related but unequal in importance, combine the sentences and turn the less important idea into a subordinate clause to show its subordinate (or inferior) position.

Example: Many women could not cast a vote in a federal election. The Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in 1920.

Combined: Many women could not cast a vote in a federal election until the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in 1920.

The bold part is an example of subordination.

Coordination in English

coordination:

placing ideas in a sentence so that they have equal value.

coordination is achieved by connecting equal ideas from separate sentences, and joining them with a conjunction.

Example: Kangaroos carry their young in pouches. Koalas carry their young in pouches.

Combined: Kangaroos and koalas carry their young in pouches.

The red part shows coordination.

apposition:

using appositives and appositive phrases correctly.

appositive:

A noun or pronoun placed beside another noun or pronoun to identify or describe it.

Example: The cosmonaut, Yuri Gagrin, was the first person in space.

An appositive and its modifiers.

Example: Officer Webb, one of the security guards, caught the burglar.
