A subordinate clause or a dependant clause is a type of a clause that alone cannot stand in a sentence. On its own, a dependant clause cannot express a complete thought; therefore it is usually connected to an independent clause. However a dependant or subordinate clause can contain a subject and a predicament, it sounds very incomplete on its own.

A dependant clause can normally begin with a dependant word; this dependant word is known as subordinating conjunction. The use of subordinating conjunctions is normally used for the beginning of a dependant clause; this is known as adverbial clause. A sentence which contains an independent clause and has one or more dependant clauses, such a sentence is known as a complex sentence.
