The Choo-choo Clause

a: Dependent clause ~
b: a railway car

What: "We talked about sentences being made up of subjects, verbs, and sometimes completers. If all three of those parts make a complete thought, we call that an independent clause. This is just a fancy term for "complete sentence." Think of this independent clause as your train engine. On the other hand, a dependent clause doesn't express a complete thought. Rather, a dependent clause is like a railway car that hasn't been connected to your train engine. Dependent clauses can "connect" to sentences in three places: at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of the sentence."
