CLAUSES

Allows Diverse Structures!

Clauses are essential components of English language syntax, playing a crucial role in constructing meaningful sentences. A clause is a group of words containing a subject and a predicate, forming a complete thought. Independent clauses express complete ideas and can stand alone as sentences, while dependent clauses rely on independent clauses for context and meaning. The combination of these clauses allows for the creation of diverse sentence structures, enabling effective communication and conveying nuanced meanings in written and spoken language. Understanding and using clauses proficiently enhances clarity, coherence, and precision in communication.
