Transcript of Adjective and Adverb Clauses

Adjective and
Adverb Clauses What is a clause again? A clause is a group of related words that has a subject and a verb. a clause can be either
independent (a complete thought)
or dependent (an incomplete thought) So, then, what is an adjective or adverb clause? Both Adjective and adverb clauses are types of dependent clauses.

They cannot stand on their own.

They do not express a complete thought. Adjective clauses work like adjectives. They describe nouns and pronouns. Adjective clauses clarify the noun or noun phrase by answering questions about "which?" or "what type of?" For example: Jeremy, who won the lottery, moved to Hawaii. We now know which Jeremy moved to Hawaii. Let's look at some more examples: http://www.grammar-quizzes.com/adjclausequiz.html http://www.learnenglishfeelgood.com/lefg1_adjectiveclauses1.html Adverb clauses describe the verbs in the sentence. Adverb clauses are also dependent clauses. Adverbial clauses answer questions that relate to time, location, purpose, and condition.
If the clause answers the question "why?", "when?", "where?", "to what degree?", or "under what conditions?" then it is an adverbial clause. For example: Sean will come to your party if you promise to let his band play. the subject the verb (and helping verb) under what conditions?
