PART II. The Compound Sentence. 108. A Simple Sentence, as we have seen, consists of one Subject and one Predicate--or it may be more than one of each linked together by Coordination--without any Subordinate Clauses. A Compound Sentence is one in which the main Sentence (or Principal Clause, as it is termed) has one or more Subordinate Clauses, i. e. Clauses grammatically dependent upon it, each with a Subject and Predicate of its own. 109. Subordinate Clauses may be of three kinds: A. Adjectival Clauses; B. Substantival Clauses; C. Adverbial Clauses. 110. An Adjectival Clause is one which qualifies some Noun or Pronoun exactly in the same way as an Adjective qualifies the Noun with which it agrees. Thus if we say Savages who eat men are called cannibals; the Clause who eat men is manifestly equivalent to an Adjective qualifying the Noun savages; and the Adjective man-eating might be substituted for it.
