•A dependent clause (also called a subordinate clause) is a clause that cannot stand alone, because something about it implies that there is more to come. On its own, a dependent clause is left hanging, it is incomplete. It must be combined with an independent clause in order to form a complete sentence. It contains a subject and a verb.
Example: Together they looked at the birds, at the park.
"At the park" is a dependent clause because it does not finish the thought. just reading that part you do not know who is there, or what they are doing.
You will normally use commas in two situations. When there is a list or series of events, or before a conjunction (f.a.n.b.o.y.s)
Example of a list: To make his sandwich, he took out the bread, the peanut butter, jelly, and a plate.
Example before the conjunction: He was hungry, so he made a sandwich.
There are two types of dependent clauses
There are adverb and adjective clauses.
Adverb clauses will begin with a subordinating conjunction and can move in a sentence.
An adjective clause starts with a relative pronoun and can not move in a sentence.
An independent clause is a complete thought and can stand alone in a sentence.
An independent clause needs to be a complete thought and have a subject and verb.
Example: I had to wake up early today.
There are five relative pronouns: who, whom, whose, which, that
Example: The person who has the best aim wins the game.
Relative pronouns are used to link a relative clause to another part of a sentence and has the job of introducing the relative clause. We use the term “relative” pronoun because it “relates” to the word it is modifying.
A simple sentence, also called an independent clause, contains a subject and a verb, and it expresses a complete thought.
Example: They practice basketball after school.
A compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. (F.A.N.B.O.Y.S)
This is a YouTube video i found on sentence structure to the song "Baby" by Justin Bieber.
Here is the difference between compound and complex sentences:
A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinate such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which.
Example: She went outside to play, after she finished her lunch.
This has two complete thoughts, joined by a subordinate (after). She is the noun, and went is the verb in the first independent clause. She is the noun, and finished is the verb in the second independent clause. They are put together into one sentence using the word after.
A sentence with two or more independent clauses and at least one dependent clause.
Example: Since it was raining outside, she went inside and watched T.V.
Since it was raining is a dependent clause. It is not a complete thought and can not stand alone. But when you join it with "she went inside and watched T.V." (an independent clause) it completes the thought and makes it together, a sentence.
Use a semicolon in place of a period to separate two sentences where the conjunction has been left out.
Use either a semicolon or a comma before introductory words for example, however, therefore, that is, or when they introduce a list following a complete sentence. Use a comma after the introductory word
A coordinating conjunction joins parts of a sentence (for example words or independent clauses) that are grammatically equal or similar. A coordinating conjunction shows that the elements it joins are similar in importance and structure
Coordinating conjunctions are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. you can remember this by using F.A.N.B.O.Y.S
A gerund is a verbal that ends ion -ing, and functions as a noun.
It is a verb that is used as an adjective
It is a verbal consisting of the word "to" and a verb
A gerund phrase is a group of words with a gerund and modifier/ pronoun or noun phrase.
A group of words consisting of an infinitive and modifiers.
It occupies as: Subject, direct object, subject complement, and object of the preposition.
Example: The birds not enjoy my singing.
Singing is the gerund because it is a verb that is functioning as a noun. It occupied the direct object.
Example: The man almost crashed his car because he was speeding.
Speeding is the gerund because it is a verb that is acting as a noun. It occupies the object of the preposition.
It is the subject of the sentence.
Example: My mom can tell if I am faking an illness so I will not have to go to school.
" faking an illness" is the gerund phrase. It is acting as the object of the preposition. Faking is the gerund.
Example: Being the manager of the new restaurant made him nervous. "Being the manager" is the gerund phrase. it is acting as the subject of the sentence. Being is the gerund and manager is the subject complement.
It mainly ends in -ing, or -ed.
Past- -ed, -en, -d, -t, -n, or -en (Ex: eaten)
Example: Crying, the little boy stood up, after he had fallen.
Crying, is the participle.
A group of words consisting of a participle and the modifier.
Example: Removing his shoes, Jack jumped in the lake.
"Removing" is the participle because it is a verb used as an adjective. "His" is the direct object. Removing his shoes is the participle phrase.
Example: She noticed the man walking outside her house.
"Walking" is the participle, and "outside her house" is the participle phrase.
It functions as a noun, adjective, or adverb.
***to + verb
Example: We have to study before the big test.
The infinitive is "to study". It is functioning as an adverb. You know it is an infinitive because study is a verb.
Example: Phil decided to give me a ride.
"To give" is the infinitive phrase. Me is the indirect object, and ride is the direct object. "to give me a ride" is the infinitive phrase.
Example: She asked me to bring some food to the party.
"To bring is the infinitive phrase, and "some food" is the direct object.
