(Basic) Subordinating Conjunctions Expressing Spatial Relationships

Where and wherever are subordinating conjunctions that show a spatial relationship; they add place or location information to the independent clause.

Example sentences showing spatial relationships

I prefer to go shopping where the prices are low.

You can sit wherever you find an empty desk.

Wherever we can find a hotel, we will stop driving for the night. (See “Note.”)

Note. You must use a comma after the dependent clause (the clause with the subordinating conjunction) only when you start the sentence with it. (See the last example sentence above.)
