Example sentences using "Clause"

Q: Please show me example sentences with conditional clause.
A: yeah, it is more common to say the first sentence even if it is not technically correct like you said.
but if you want to say something about location you would say “If I had been there, I would have...” or “If I had been here earlier, I would have...”
Or if you were talking about a past event, you use “had”
ex) If I HAD worked harder, I would have gotten better grades

but in most other cases people usually just say “If I were”
ex) If I were richer, I would buy this car
ex) If you were older, you could have this job
some people also say “If I was you” or “If I was (adjective)”, which also makes sense ( for I only )

it is easy to understand both sentences you said, this is just to sound more natural

hopefully that makes sense!!

Synonyms of "Clause" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between clause and sentence ?
A: A sentence is a complete statement whereas a clause is just part of it. An example of a clause is, "When the sun went down" or "because I had run out of coffee". A sentence might be, "When the sun went down, I drove to the supermarket because I had run out of coffee". The MAIN clause is the clause that can stand on its own, in this case "I drove to the supermarket". Of course, a sentence can consist of just one clause e.g. "I went to the cinema yesterday".
Q: What is the difference between Below, are clauses which specify obligations, agreed price and service after sales to buy the computer equipment for sale and Below are the clauses specifying the obligations, agreed price and after-sales service for the purchase and sale of computer equipment ?
A: Both mean the same thing. They are just using slightly different words or word placement.

which specify = clauses that specify = clauses specifying

service after sales = after-sale service = the service (or services) that are available after purchase

to buy = for the purchase = in order to purchase
Q: What is the difference between that clause and which clause ?
A: Somewhat correct, but it depends on the context. "which" can also be used in referring to people abilities, characteristics, etc.
Q: What is the difference between which and where on relative clause ?
A: 'I went to the store, where I saw my friend Allison.' (Be careful here; if there were no comma, it would mean that the listener already knows that there's a store where I saw her, and I'm telling which store I more recently went to. With the comma, a specific store is already implied or understood, and I'm saying that I saw her on this particular trip to that store.) 'I went to the store, which is located next to the library.' 'Which' gives more information about the thing mentioned before. If the listener already knows that there's a store next to the library and I'm specifying which one I went to, I would just say 'I went to the store next to the library.'

Translations of "Clause"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I am still wondering about when the main clause has future tense, what kinds of tenses the subordinate clause has.
If possible, please give examples.
,
A: I wish I could help, but unfortunately I’m no expert when it comes to technical English grammar.

These sound like great questions to ask an English teacher/professor though. I’m sure they would have a much better answer than I would.

The examples I gave may not be 100% grammatically correct, but they sounded correct/natural to my ears. I would double check with an English textbook/teacher just to be sure.

Again, I’m sorry I wasn’t able to answer your question, but I wish you luck in finding answers!
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? According to clause 62: The medical institution shall respect the patient's right to be informed of the diagnosis and treatment of his/her condition, and shall make necessary explanations to the patient during their special examination. Natural?
A: Oh also, one more thing!

Earlier you used “his/her” for pronouns, but later, you used “their”
(... their special examination.)

I recommend sticking to one type of pronoun throughout the paper.

“Their special examination” —> “his/her special examination”

Q: If you try to literally translate the 明日の~うかるか into an if clause, the sentence will be awkward. "I'm afraid that" is by far the more natural than "I'm afraid if" in English.

明日の N4の しけんに うかるか ふあんだ。
"I'm afraid I won't pass the N4 exam." does this sound natural?
A: "I'm afraid that"
"I'm afraid if" means "I'm afraid if ___ happens then ___ will happen(always a negative thing)"
Q: "if he’d be interested in" - Is it a conditional clause? and what type? First, Second, or Third?
-
Several years ago, David Nelson got a message from a recruiter asking if he’d be interested in a design job at Microsoft.
A: No, it is not a conditional clause. It is what we call reported speech.

*Would you be interested in a design job at Microsoft? - The recruiter asked David.

The recruiter asked David if he would (he'd) be interested in a design job at Microsoft.

We use the connector "if" because that is the connector we use in reported speech if it is a close question (yes/no answer).
Q: What are the main clauses here?
Please remove your backpack and hold it by hand when inside the trains.
"Remove and hold"?
A: That's the main clause, the "when inside the train" is a minor clause which just adds more information, but without it, the main clause still makes sense.
Q: What does the first clause mean in this sentence: aging leaves mental status mostly intact, a slower response time may affect new learning.
