Lesson 24: Subordinate Clauses And Complex Sentences


Subordinate Clause and Compound Sentence"A subordinate clause does the work of a single word or phrase. It has a subject and predicate but does not stand alone. A complex sentence contains one principal clause and one or more subordinate clauses. Subordinate clauses are joined to the rest of the sentence by subordinate conjunctions." It is recycling day, and as Marie sorts her paper, plastics, and bottles, washes out her tins in the birdbath, and carries her recycling bin out to the end of the driveway for pick-up, she creates sample sentences and examples that help us to grasp the concept of subordinate clauses and complex sentences. As a special treat she shows us a tree hung with interesting pieces of driftwood, each one painted with a commonly used subordinate conjunction.
