A result clause is an adverbial clause that expresses results of something, thus expressing cause and effect.

The easiest way to do this in English is to use so. For example:

  • "There was a lot of rain so there were floods."

We can also use adverbs like "consequently", "therefore", etc.

A result clause is antonymous to a reason clause.

Do not confuse with a consequential clause.
