A Clause is a group of words that forms part of a sentence and has a subject and a finite verb of its own. In simple language we can say — a clause is a sentence within a sentence.

For example:

1. This is the man who won the trophy.
 2. I know that it is true.
 3. Tell me where you go.
 4. My uncle is a man whom everybody respects.

In the above sentences there are two parts.

Part 1Part 2
1. This is the manwho won the trophy. 
2.  I knowthat it is true.
3.  Tell mewhere you go.
4.  My uncle is a manwhom everybody respects.

 

Part 1 in these sentences does not depend on Part 2. But Part 2 depends upon Part 1 to give its complete sense. Part 1 is independent and therefore called as Independent or Main or Principal Clause. And Part 2 is called Subordinate or Dependent Clause.
