Relative clauses

 

relative clause is a specific type of subordinate clause that adapts, describes or modifies a noun.

Relative clauses add information to sentences by using a relative pronoun such as who, that or which.
 

Relative pronoun  Noun that the pronoun refers to
who Refers to a person
which Refers to an animal, place or thing
that Can refer to a person, place or thing


The relative clause is used to add information about the noun, so it must be ‘related’ to the noun.

Here are some examples of relative clauses (in purple):

A relative clause can also be an embedded clause if it is positioned in the middle of a sentence, for example:
