There are many types of sentences in the English language. Some are easy sentences and some are complicated or complex sentences. The meaning of easy sentences can easily understand but to understand a complex sentence, you have to break in two different clauses. The two clauses is divided into main and subordinate. In this segment, you will see the Subordinating Conjunctions List and its implementation.
Subordinating Conjunctions List:
The main clause is also called the independent clause whereas the subordinate clause is called a dependent clause. The main part of a complex sentence is the subordinate clause or conjunction as it contains the real meaning of the sentence. The subordinate clause has two major roles; first, it gives the needed transition among the two different ideas of the sentence like time, effect and place relationship; secondly, the subordinate clause decreases the effect of one clause so that the person can understand, which of the ideas is important. The main clause represents the real idea and the subordinate clause represents the secondary idea.
As you all know, a conjunction is a word that joins two different sentences or parts of sentences. There are two types of conjunctions; primary conjunction and the secondary conjunction. The primary class of conjunctions is also called the coordinating conjunctions and the secondary class of conjunctions is called the subordinating conjunctions or the subordinate conjunctions. There is many subordinating or subordinate conjunctions used in the English language. Some of these words are how, no matter, lest, in order that, if, but that, before, because, as , although, after, what, until, unless, till, though, that, than, supposing, so, that, since, even though, why, who, while, which, whether, wherever, whereas, where, whenever and when.
The idea of subordinating conjunctions is also used in the German language. The German subordinate clauses or conjunctions are very similar to that used in the English language. Even their implementation is similar to that in English language. Some of the german subordinate clauses are wenn, weil, wahrend, trotzdem, solang(e), sodas/ so dass, sobald, seit/ seitdem, obwohl, obschon, obgleich, ob, nachdem, indem, falls, ehe, dass, damit, da, bis, bevor and als. All these German subordinate conjunctions have a similar meaning as they have in the English language.
Some of these are also used as prepositions and can be confusing at times but this is not a big issue. Sometimes the words can also be used in the form of comparative words and you should keep a check on the utilization of the subordinate conjunction in a sentence.
