• A phrase is not a complete sentence.

In Ethiopia (phrase (P) – what? What in Ethiopia? We don’t know.

A dependent clause is a sentence that has a subject and a verb, but can’t stand alone.
Example : I study hard. (Can stand alone)
If I study hard (can’t stand alone). This is because of “If”.
Read the following words. They make an independent clause.
Unless when as since where which
If because while although why with
Example: I come to school. (Independent sentence)
Unless I come to school, (dependent) it doesn’t give full information.
Unless I come to school, I will not learn. Now it is complete depending on “I will not learn.”
