A complete sentence has three characteristics: First, it begins with a capital letter. In addition, it includes an end mark—either a period [. ], question mark [? ], or exclamation point [! ]. Most importantly, the complete sentence must contain at leastone main clause. A main clausecontains an independent subjectand verband expresses a complete thought. A main clause—sometimes called anindependent clause—must contain a subjectand a verbas well as express a complete thought. Look at the examples below: Example of Main Clause: Diane kicked the soda machine. Diane= the subject; kicked= the verb. Remember this important point: You must have at least one main clause in every sentence. A main clause is theessential component. Without a main clause, a group of words is a fragment, a major error in writing. A subordinate clause—also called a dependent clause—will begin with a subordinate conjunctionor a relative pronounand will contain both a subjectand a verb. This combination of words will notform a complete sentence. It will instead make a reader want additional information to finish the thought.
