Editor’s Corner: Subordinate Clause

Good morning!

A subordinate (dependent) clause is a group of words, with a subject and a verb, that cannot stand alone as a complete sentence.

Here is an example:

· Because I woke up late this morning.

To make this fragment a complete sentence, attach it to the beginning or end of an independent clause. An independent clause is a complete sentence that can stand alone.

Examples:

· I missed the meeting because I woke up late this morning.

· Because I woke up late this morning, I missed the meeting.
