We are coming to the end of my grammar posts. I only have one more after this one, that I may or may not post because it’s, in a word, lame (Intensifiers). Then again, I know how much you are simply dying to read about intensifiers so….
A clause is a group of related words that (unlike a phrase) has both a subject and a complete verb. A sentence always has at least one clause, but it may have more clauses.
There are two types of clauses: Independent and Dependent.
An Independent Clause can stand alone as a complete sentence; a Dependent clause cannot. It’s that simple.
