3 The RulesA complex sentence consists of an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. Using a subordinating conjunction (because, although, if, etc.) creates a dependent clause. Using a relative pronoun (who, whom, that, or which) creates a dependent clause.I would really love my English class if we didn’t have to do so much writing.
4 Complex SentencesThese also consist of more than one clause: a dependent and an independent.The key is to find the subordinating conjunction in the sentence which is either at the beginning with a comma in the middle of the sentence before the independent clause, or in the middle with no comma and an independent clause at the beginning of the complex sentence.
5 Subordinating Conjunctions After, although, as, as far as, as if, as long as, as soon as, as thoughBecause, before, besidesEven though, even if, ever sinceIf, in order thatSince, so thatThan, that, thoughUnless, upon, untilWhen, whenever, where, wherever, whether, whileABE IS TUW
