English Grammar Pattern 92
(1) "Now that" + (2) Finished Action + (3) Result

Model Sentence

(1) Now that (2) we're finished, (3) we can relax.

In grammar Pattern 92, we begin with the phrase "Now that", then add an action that is finished, followed at last by the result, which is usually in the form of a sentence. It is possible to invert the sentence, using "now that" in the middle and stating the result first.
