### What's a finite clause"

If a finite verb is defined simply as a conjugated verb (i.e. marked by a tense + person + number), a finite clause, therefore, is one in which a finite (i.e. *conjugated*) verb appears. Genius!

We call this **une proposition finie** in French --> a clause that contains a conjugated verb.

Elle sait que vous **travaillez** à cet endroit. --> */ She knows that you work at this place. *(The finite verb in the subordinate clause -- travaillez -- turns that clause into a finite clause. Likewise, the verb sait in the main clause makes it a finite clause as well.)
