What are subordinating conjunctions?


Subordinating conjunctions are words or phrases that link a subordinate (dependent) clause to a main (independent) clause.

They include although and because.


Subordinate clauses

A subordinate clause (also known as a dependent clause) has two main characteristics

  1. Unlike Main Clauses, they do not express a complete unit of thought on their own
  2. They depend upon Main Clauses in order to make grammatical sense

In order to join dependent and independent clauses together, a subordinating conjunction is required.
