Clauses: A “clause” is a part of a larger sentence, and it MUST contain a subject and a verb. Often a sentence has 2 clauses: A main clause is a complete sentence and can stand independently.

Note: Introductory clause = main clause I think . . . He feels . . . She believes . . . Noun clause = dependent clause ... (that) . . .
