Welcome to the Noun Clauses module!
In this module, we define a noun clause and when it requires the subjunctive.
In this lesson, we define a subordinate noun clause and when it requires the subjunctive. Then, we practice using the subjunctive following common verbs of influence.
In this lesson, we practice using the subjunctive following main clauses that express an attitude of influence or an attitude of emotion or judgment.
We use the subjunctive to express denial, disbelief or uncertainty. While opposite statements expressing a belief, affirmation or certainty about one’s perceived reality, call for the indicative.
Learn to identify the noun clause in a sentence, and then when to use the subjunctive vs the indicative within the noun clause.
