Continuing with our focus on grammar, and our work on coordinating conjunctions, today we are going to look at subordinating conjunctions.
You should already know the following subordinating conjunctions: because, that, when and if and these words are used to add extra information to the main clause. This subordinating conjunction and extra information is called a subordinate clause and must include a verb and noun. The subordinating clause in a sentence does not make sense as a sentence on its own, so is added to the main clause which will make sense on its own.
