Adverb dependent clauses

An adverb dependent clause acts just like (surprise, surprise) an adverb. It gives you extra information about the activity that is happening in the main part of the sentence. For instance, we could have a simple sentence like this:

I will go bed.

There’s a verb in this sentence - ‘will go’. I can add an adverb clause to the sentence to add some information about the verb ‘will go’:

I will go to bed when my television show is finished.

The clause ‘when my television show is finished’ provides us with extra information about the activity in the main clause.
