Exploring the 5 Types of Clauses: A Detailed Guide

What are Clauses? Definition: A clause is a group of words that consists of a verb and a subject . The verb indicates an action or a state of being, while the subject is someone or something performing the action.

Instead of repeating a noun, like a person's name, over and over, we use pronouns to make our sentences less repetitive and smoother. Common pronouns include 'he,' 'she,' 'it,' 'they,' 'we,' and 'I.' For instance, instead of saying, "Sarah went to the store, and Sarah bought apples," we can say, "Sarah went to the store, and she bought apples." Pronouns help us speak and write more efficiently and sound less repetitive.
