English – Grammar

Our grammar focus this week is subordinate clause.

Look at the first example: Like a bullet speeding through the air, he ran through the door.

he ran through the door – makes sense on its own, so it is the main clause.

Like a bullet speeding through the air – does not make sense on its own but has to depend on the other part to make sense, so it is a subordinate clause.

Watch the following links to learn more about the subordinate clause. In the 2nd video, they have used the word ‘independent clause’ for the main clause and ‘dependent clause‘ for the subordinate clause:

Top tip: Usually there is a conjunction at the start of the subordinate clause.
