Subordinating conjunction

From Teflpedia

A subordinating conjunction (/sʌbɔ:dɪneɪtɪŋg kənʤʌnkʃən/) or subordinator (/sʌbɔ:dɪneɪtə/) is a type of conjunction that is used for subordination to introduce a subordinate clause.

The main examples in English are “that,” “if” and “whether.”

Traditional grammar includes many more subordinating conjunctions. However, Huddleston and Pullum reanalyse them as prepositions. Examples of these include “because", “so", “since", “before", “after", "when", etc.
