what s a clause
What’s a clause?
  • A clause is a part of a sentence.
  • There are two main types:
    • independent clauses
    • dependent clauses (subordinate)
      • But we’ll talk about them later!
independent clauses
Independent Clauses
  • An independent clause is a complete sentence that expresses a complete thought.
  • It can stand on its own, because it is independent.
  • It contains a SUBJECT and a PREDICATE.
  • A subject is what the sentence is about. The predicate is what the subject does — the verb.
