English - Noun

CLAUSE (_plural_ CLAUSES) * (Can we clean up(+) this sense?) (grammar, informal) A group of two or more words which include a subject and any necessary predicate (the predicate also includes a verb, conjunction, or a preposition) to begin the clause; however, this clause is not considered a sentence for colloquial purposes. * (grammar) A verb along with its subject and their modifiers. If a clause provides a complete thought on its own, then it is an independent (superordinate) clause; otherwise, it is (subordinate) dependent. * However, Coordination facts seem to undermine this hasty conclusion: thus, consider the following: (43)      [Your sister could go to College], but [_would she get a degree_?] The second (italicised) conjunct is a CLAUSE containing an inverted Auxiliary, _would_. Given our earlier assumptions that inverted Auxiliaries are in C, and that C is a constituent of S-bar, it follows that the italicised CLAUSE in (43) must be an S-bar. But our familiar constraint on Coordination tells us that only constituents belonging to _the same Category_ can be conjoined. Since the second CLAUSE in (43) is clearly an S-bar, then it follows that the first CLAUSE must also be an S-bar — one in which the C(omplementiser) position has been left empty. * (law) A separate part of a contract, a will or another legal document. USAGE NOTES In _When it got dark, they went back into the house_, “_When_ it got dark” is a dependent clause within the complete sentence. The independent clause "they went back into the house" could stand alone as a sentence, whereas the dependent clause could not. DERIVED TERMS RELATED TERMS * close TRANSLATIONS
