"Ordinate"? You mean coordinate?

Oh, I do! Just not all that often. :P Good thing it isn't, though.

Yes, thank you! Though aren't there ordinate clauses as well? Or is the opposite of a subordinate clause a superordinate clause?

I've never heard of either "ordinate clause" or "superordinate clause." I think the term you're looking for may be "main clause."

Oh ok, thanks. I guess by definition of subordinate, I figured the main clause must also be (able to be) called "ordinate". :D
