An embedded clause is present in a complex sentence, where there are multiple clauses. Embedded clauses are clauses inside of other clauses. For example in the following sentence, the bolded string is the embedded clause "I think that Mary likes peanuts". and A kernel sentence is a form of a sentence that is always active and affirmative. It is the form that does not contain any marked expression, mood or voice, it is passive.
example of kernel sentence The boy closed the door.


Embedded Sentences (and in some occasion called as embedded clause) are clauses usually placed in the middle of another clause. In simple terms, embedded sentences are clauses within clauses. They usually give more emphasis to the subject, or give the subject some description in order to provide the reader with some context as to what or who is doing the action.
