What are Subordinating Conjunctions?
A Subordinating Conjunction is a conjunction that connects a subordinate clause to the main clause. It generally introduces an adverb clause. It indicates the nature of the relationship between the subordinate clause and the main clause by linking two ideas. Thus it does two works. It introduces the Subordinate Clause and also expresses the relationship between the independent clause and the dependent clause.
