Chapter 28. Grammar > Subordinating Conjunctions

Subordinating Conjunctions

A subordinating conjunction comes at the beginning of a dependent clause and establishes the relationship between the clause and the rest of the sentence. For example, He spoke Spanish as if he had been born in Mexico.

Many subordinating conjunctions also serve as prepositions (see Table 28-7). When they serve as subordinating conjunctions they introduce the dependent clause.
