Purpose and reason clauses are subclauses that give more information about the main clause. Purpose clauses give more information about the purpose of the action in the main clause and reason clauses tell you more about the reason.

These subclauses don’t have any meaning on their own so they require a main clause to have meaning. For a full overview of purpose and reason clauses, click here.
