Subordinate v.s. Coordinate

Subordinate v.s. Coordinate conjunctions

.我都知那些是SUB,那些係COORDINATE CONJUNCTIONS.

咩叫DEPENDENT OR INDEPENDENT CLAUSE我都知.

我唔係幾明它們的分別主要係意思上有咩不同.

It was raining, so I took my umbrella.(coordinate conjuction -SO)

Because it was raining, I took my umbrella.(.(subordinate conjuction -because)

仲有成日話Because it was raining表逹唔到一個完整意思,但so I took my umbrella又米表達唔到一個完整意思.

你同人講呢兩句人地都唔太明.

更新:

其實SO同BECAUSE的那句CLAUSE均不可以獨立以句號作完結.

為何要分SUBORDINATE 同COORDINATE?

SUB 同COORDINATE分別在於甚麼?

最好可以講埋呢度_知識長.

    It was raining, so I took my umbrella.(coordinate conjuction -SO)

    這句主要是形容當時正下雨,所以帶了雨傘出街。

    Because it was raining, I took my umbrella.(.(subordinate conjuction -because)

    這句是想解釋帶雨傘的原因,原因是當時正下雨。這句話可能是回答人家問為什麼要帶雨傘。而前面那句不是回應人家,只是形容當時的情況,順便講埋帶雨傘出街。

    讓我試吓這樣解釋:

    (1) so , and , but, yet , for, so, 是coordinating conjunctions. 用途是將兩個independent clause linked together. ( clause是要有subject ,有verb的) It was raining 和 I took my umbrella.兩句是independent的。

    加上so後,兩原句的關係仍是鬆散(loose)的。

    2) Because 是 subordinating conjunction.當它放在一個 dependent clause 之前, 如Because it was raining,就變為 dependent(subordinating) clause了, 單是看”Because it was raining” 人們不明白其意思 ,要看埋I took my umbrella才明白整句意思。這亦是 subordinating(輔助) 的意思。

    加上Because,兩句的關係變得密切很多(tighter) 。

    nor 亦是coordinating conjunction
