GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Clauses?
In grammar, a clause is the smallest grammatical unit that can express a complete proposition . In some languages it may be a pair or group of words that consists of a subject and a predicate, although in other languages in certain clauses the subject may not appear explicitly as a noun phrase. It may instead be marked on the verb (this is especially common in null subject languages). The most basic kind of sentence consists of a single clause. More complicated sentences may contain multiple clauses, including clauses contained within clauses. Clauses are divided into two categories: independent clauses and dependent clauses. Independent clauses can be easily differentiated from dependent clauses by their ability to stand by themselves, even when connected with different clauses in the same sentence.
