Subordinating Conjunctions


Subordinating conjunctions are used to join a dependent clause (incomplete thought) to an
independent clause.
The subordinating conjunction "when" is used to join the dependent clause to the
independent clause.
The independent clause (SVC) contains a subject (S), a verb (V), and a completer (C). The
completer - any word or words that complete the thought.
Phrases are word groups that function within the sentence.
Subordinate clauses are not complete sentences because they have a subordinator before
their subject.


Coordinating Conjunctions: It used to connect two independent clauses.
Conjunction: It is a joiner, a word that connects (conjoins) parts of a sentence.
Subordinating Conjunctions: It used to establish the relationship between the dependent clause
and the rest of the sentence.
