Sentences clauses and fanboys

Sentences, Clauses, and FANBOYS


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.
