Relative Clauses

 

A relative clause can be used to give additional information about a noun (naming word). They are introduced by a relative pronoun like 'that', 'which', 'who', 'whose', 'where' and 'when'.

 

For example: 'I won’t stand by the man who smells of slime'.

 

They can be used to create complex sentences as they are a type of subordinate clause . A subordinate clause is a part of a sentence that adds additional information to the main clause.

 

Relative clauses come directly after the noun they are referring to. This might be at the end of a sentence or embedded into the middle of a sentence. If it is embedded into the middle of a sentence, the relative clause is usually surrounded by commas.
