Dependent Clauses

A dependent clause contains a subject and a predicate, but becauseit is introduced by a subordinating word it does not express acomplete thought and cannot stand alone as a sentence. It must always be accompanied by at leastone independent clause.

There are three kinds of dependent clauses: noun clauses, adjective clauses, and adverbial clauses.
