English Grammar Intro to Phrase and Clause Independent Clause

Independent Clause

Independent Clauses itself expresses the complete meaning.

For example,

  • She giggled.

In this example, the two words she (subject) and giggled (Verb) gives the complete meaning that the girl laughed softly and repetitively in a silly manner. This is an example, of independent clause because the clause itself makes the complete sense.

  • Please give me a glass of water, I am feeling thirsty.


Here the part of the sentence-“I am feeling thirsty” is an independent clause because itself has a complete meaning.  It itself implies that the subject is thirsty and wants water.
