Independent Clauses

Independent clauses can stand completely by themselves. They have both a subject and a predicate, and they are complete thoughts. An independent clause can be a sentence, but a sentence can be more complex than an independent clause. For example, a sentence can contain two independent clauses instead of one.

Consider the following example of an independent clause.

I gave Shelby the present.

This sentence is an independent clause. It has a subject (I) and a predicate (gave Shelby the present). It is also a complete thought. The reader does not have any major questions about the sentence.
