They can also be referred to as the independent clause.Common subordinating conjunctions are: after, although, because, before, even though, if, once, rather than, since that, though, unless, until, whenever, whereas, and while. For example, “I went to the cafeteria before I went to class.” Cath Anne:  The word before connects the subordinate clause, ‘I went to class’ with the independent clause, ‘I went to the cafeteria’.

In this show, for those of you who don’t know, we provide you with content for your academic and student life.
Cath Anne:  Just a quick reminder before we do jump into the content, every Monday at 7pm Eastern Standard Time you can join me live on Instagram and we will just have a quick chat and I’ll remind you to check out some of our videos. Cath Anne:  This week we are returning to our Grammar 101 series and we are going to talk about the parts of speech.
Cath Anne:  So, for example, in a sentence, “Susan walked slowly towards the door”, the adverb would be the word slowly, because it describes how Susan walked.
Cath Anne:  A preposition shows the relationship between a noun and a verb.It always helps to get back to the foundations of the language and to re-learn a few of these skills. Cath Anne:  The 8 parts of speech are nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions.Last week we discussed nouns and pronouns and this week we are going to give you a brief overview of the other parts of speech.All words in the language classified as one of the parts of speech.Understanding these different parts of speech can allow you to communicate more fluently, it can allow you to write more quality essays, it can help you to punctuate sentences properly.For example, in the sentence, “Frank is a tall, skinny man” can you guess which are the adjectives?‘Tall’ and ‘skinny’ are both adjectives because they describe the, noun or the subject, who is Frank. They are certainly similar to adjectives, but they act in the same way towards verbs. You might recognize adverbs because they generally tend to end in ‘ly’.So, for example, in the sentence I just gave you, ‘toward the door’ is considered a prepositional phrase because it ends with the word ‘toward’. Cath Anne:  Subordinating conjunctions come at the beginning of a subordinate clause.They are used to connect the subordinate clause to the rest of the sentence.So, keep in mind that these are all verbs as well even though they don’t indicate blatant action.Cath Anne:  Another thing to remember is that verbs often change their ending to indicate a temporal relationship or a relationship to time. For example, ‘walk’ is the present tense of the verb ‘to walk’ and ‘walked with an ‘ed’ added to it indicates the past tense of the verb ‘walk’.
