Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 Excerpt: ...up that the nations might behold the scene." Here as, if, and that connect each a lower, or subordinate, clause to a clause of higher rank, and hence are called subordinating conjunctions.

If I can find a time is a subordinate clause depending upon the independent clause, I mil help you with your work. The last clause, when I can leave my own, is also a subordinate clause, but it is still lower in rank than the clause introduced by if, because it depends on that clause for its meaning and modifies a word in it, time. Conjunctions that are used in pairs (such as either... or, both... and, not only... but also) are called correlative conjunctions. As if, in case that, and similar groups of connective words are called compound conjunctions, in distinction from the simple conjunctions. A conjunction is a word used to connect words, phrases, or clauses. Coordinating conjunctions are such as connect words, phrases, and clauses of the same rank. Subordinating conjunctions are such as connect clauses of different ranks. Like is not a conjunction. It is incorrect to use like in place of as or as if to connect a subordinate with a principal clause. Right Wrong It looked as if he would win. It looked like he would win.
