What are some sentence examples to follow with

Consecutive sentence connection: so, therefore, as a result

“Research into diseases has so made great strides that it is getting harder and harder to find someone who is completely healthy. "
(Aldous Huxley)

In the consecutive sentence connection, two sentences are connected that are in a basic-sequence relationship to one another.

Example:
The mother beats the child. The child cries.
"Reason" - "consequence" ("consequence")
"Hit" - "cry"

In contrast to the causal sentence connection, the “sequence” is marked in the consecutive sentence connection.

Subordinate clause: so

The subordinate clause contains the "consequence", the main clause the "reason". In subordinate clauses with so that is the verb at the end.

Example:
The mother beats the child so that it cries.

It is not possible to change the main and subordinate clauses. The subordinate clause with so that always comes after the main clause.

Position variant of so

If there is an adverb in the main clause, will so mostly preferred to the main clause and placed before this adverb.

Example: Position of so
so in the subordinate clause: The mother hits the child hard, so that it is crying.
so in the main clause: The mother beats the child so strong, that it is crying.

In the second sentence the adverb is stressed, in the first sentence the consequence. This also applies if the adverb is used as an adjective attribute in the main clause.

Example:
so in the subordinate clause: He was a bad kid, so that the mother always had to scold him
so in the main clause: He was a so bad Child, that the mother always had to scold him.

Sometimes this can also be used without an adverb in the main clause, because the adverb can be easily supplemented.

Example:
so in the subordinate clause: The child screamed, so that the neighbors called the police.
so in the main clause: The child screamed so that the neighbors called the police. (= so loud)

Spelling: so or so that

The Duden recommends the summary so that, accepts hyphenation so that but as an alternative notation.

Variant of so: so, (so (ig)

So you can also through the words so or such) replace.

Example:
The child screamed so loud that the neighbors called the police.
The child screamed such) loud that the neighbors called the police.

Subordinate clause (restricted variant): as that (only with negation)

A negative consequence with so that one cannot go through without negation to plus as that and express subjunctive II.

Example:
He is so ill, that he nott to work can go.
He is to ill, as that he to work could go.

Indicative is also used in spoken language.

Example: spoken language
He is to ill, as that he to work can go.

If the nominative is identical, a sentence is followed by in order to possible. This should not be confused with a final movement.

Example: Consecutive clause with in order to
He is to ill, around to work to be able to go.

Subordinate clause: why / why

Prepositional expression: as a result

Instead of a consecutive main or subordinate clause, a prepositional expression with as a result stand. As a result is a preposition with genitive. Note: As a result marks the "reason" and not the "consequence". It corresponds to the causal because of. It's an upscale variant of because of. Due to the word formation from the noun the sequence, it is mostly dealt with in the consecutive sentence connection.

Example:
As a result of the blows the mother cries the child.
