Grammar Tip Of The Day

Subordinate clauses, or dependent clauses, do not express a complete thought. They are not complete sentences and can not be used independently. Rather, they depend on an independent phrase to complete them:

After I was done work, I went to my mother’s house.

These clauses come in a few forms, behaving as nouns, adverbs or adjectives:

Noun Clause: I.e.:

Those that listen to extremely loud music will lose their hearing.

Adverb Clause:

We danced until the sun rose.

Adjective Clause:

The thief that robbed us is back on the streets.

Once a subordinate and independent clause come together, a complex sentence is formed. It will contain an independent clause and one or more subordinate clauses. They are linked by subordinating conjunctions (after, although, until, than, unless, etc., ) or relative pronouns (who, what, which, how, whom, etc).
