Using adverb clauses with time expressions These type of clauses are often called "time clauses" in English grammar books and follow specific patterns. When an adverb clause begins the sentence use a comma to separate the two clauses. When the adverb clause finishes the sentence there is no need for a comma.

Autumn is the season. The leaves of many trees change color during the season. 2. Thanksgiving is a holiday. Families like to gather together on the holiday.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
