    Independent- An independent clause can stand alone. This is also caused a simple sentence. Ex. I like cats. You have a subject (I), a verb (like) and a direct object (cats) therefore, it can stand by itself. Adverbial-Adverb clauses express when, where, why, and how something occurs. A dependent clause is an adverb clause if you can replace it with an adverb, as in “I’ll do the laundry later.” Adjectival- An adjective clause describes a noun just like an adjective. See the following example: “I listened to the song that you told me about.” Which song? The new song, the good song, the song that you told me about. (also called defining and non-defining, essential and nonessential, or integrated and supplementary) Noun- A noun clause can replace any noun in a sentence, functioning as a subject, object, or complement. (“The boy wondered if his parents bought him what he wanted for Christmas)
