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.

Example: 

Whales give birth to live young as they are mammals. 

                                 or

As they are mammals, whales give birth to live young.
