Relative clauses

Posted by Manjusha. You are here: Home > English grammar > Relative clauses

Adjective clauses that begin with one of the relative pronouns (e.g. who, whom, whose, which and that) are also called relative clauses. Relative clauses are used to modify nouns and some pronouns - to identify people and things, or to give more information about them.

Relative clauses can also be introduced by that.
