表示因果:because,since,for the reason that,so…

表示条件:if,only if,in case that,provided that,as long as…

表示时间:when,while,as soon as,at the time that…

以上附属连接词标记的附属子句,可以放在主要子句的前面或后面:若附属子句在前,主要子句在后,须加上逗号隔开,以提示“逗点前并非重点,重点在后面”;若主要子句在前,附属子句在后,则不用加逗点,符合英语“重点先讲”的大原则:

重点在前:MAIN+SUB→We will go camping next weekend if the weather is good.

重点在后:SUB+MAIN→If the weather is good, we will go camping next weekend.
