Phrases Clauses A clause is a sentence fragment with a predicate (verb) AND a noun (subject). Clauses come in two parts:
1. Independent Clause
2. Dependent Clause Example Sentence Spot which is which:

When I got home, I ate dinner. If the clause could stand by itself, and form a complete sentence with punctuation, we call the clause an independent clause. I despise individuals of low character Dependent clauses have a subject doing a verb, but they have a subordinate conjunction placed in front of the clause. This means that it CAN NOT stand alone. Dependent Clauses:
since she laughs at diffident men
when the saints go marching in
because she smiled at him These clauses do not form complete thoughts because of the subordinate conjunctions (since, when, and because) A phrase is usually a sentence fragment with a noun NO! Therefore they are all phrases That's why it's Batman... Nothing special Think, Batman Think, Superman Independent Clause is... I ate Dinner Dependent clause supports the independent clause with additional information, but can not stand alone. To recap:
