An independent clause is a group of words that can stand on its own as a sentence: it has a subject, a verb, and is a complete thought.
?He ran fast.
?I was late to work.
?A dependent clause is a group of words that also contains a subject and a verb, but it is not a complete thought. Because it is not a complete thought, a dependent clause cannot stand on its own as a sentence; it is dependent on being attached to an independent clause to form a sentence.
?Because I woke up late this morning… (what happened?)
?When we arrived in class… (what occurred?)
?If my neighbor does not pay his rent on time… (what will happen?)
