    A dependent clause (or subordinate clause) is one that cannot stand alone as a complete sentence because it does not express a complete thought.

    A dependent clause is a group of words with a subject and a verb.

    a dependent clause cannot stand alone....it does, however, have a subject and a verb example : When my mom arrives -- dependent When my mom arrives we will make supper -- independent -- complete thought

    Another Example: The crew could see the whale, (which had surfaced only 50m behind them). Notice how the shaded clauses could not stand alone as sentences.
