There are two types of clauses: DEPENDENT clauses (also known as subordinate) and INDEPENDENT clauses.

A DEPENDENT clause is a clause that cannot stand by itself. Dependent clauses begin with subordinating conjunctions.

Example: although the rain fell heavily
if we can't get to the station on time
when we arrive home
