Subordinating Conjunction ( with example)

3) SUBORDINATING CONJUNCTION
Subordinating conjunctions are a word or phrase which is used to join the unequal elements. One element is called “main clause” and another is called “subordinate clause” which cannot stand alone. Those Subordinating Conjunctions are:

Example:
- She is honest although she is poor.
- I hope to see you before you go somewhere tomorrow.
- He will kill himself unless she loves him.
- She loves whoever is humble and kind.
