the subordinating conjunction

The subordinating conjunction joins larger groups of words within sen-
tences. It begins adverb clauses (groups of words that answer the questions
When? Where?How? To what extent?). The subordinating conjunction can
also be used to combine the ideas found in several sentences.

Here are the subordinating conjunctions, followed by sample sentences.

We will probably have to finish unless you know someone who could
do it for us.

    Tips for the Skier

    Be alert for cross wakes, partially submerged objects, swimmers, rafters, or anything else that might come between you and the boat. The law requires that you wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket at all times while being towed. It will allow you to rest in the water while waiting for the boat, protect the rib cage and cushions falls, and its bright color will help others on the water to spot you. Ski belts are not Coast Guard approved and do not offer positive protection to a fallen or unconscious skier. If you know you are going to fall, relax. Try to make a smooth water entry. Never fall forward over the top of your skis. You can stop quickly by letting go of the rope, sitting back over your skis, and puttingyour hands in the water on either side of your body to increase drag, or resistance. After falling, hold a ski up vertically in the air to warn approaching boats. Skiing, boarding or tubing in cold water or weather increases your risk of hypothermia, so wear a wetsuit if appropriate. When finished skiing, make sure all gear is secured in a storage rack or tied down, and all lines are safely stowed. Injuries have resulted from boards falling off racks, tubes blowing overboard, or boat occupants becoming entangled in ski lines.
