A sentence in English language can be divided into various parts. Each part of a sentence serves its relative purpose and has some specific characteristics. While all of this seems simple, there is still a lot of confusion that arise between different parts of a sentence. One such part of a sentence is a clause.
In today’s article, we will discuss about a part of a sentence or generally a grammatical term known as clause. We will highlight the meaning of the word clause and what it represents in English language and how you can identify a clause in a text.
The boy is playing.
A clause might also contain an object along with the subject which makes it stand alone as a complete sentence. One of the easiest way to distinguish between a clause and a phrase is that a clause is a set of words that makes complete sense and does not require any additional helping words to complete it.
I looked everywhere but the cat was gone.
