Relative clauses
Relative Clauses

“How poor are

they who have

not patience.”

  • Shakespeare

Relative clauses give essential

information to help identify a

particular person or thing.

Commas are not used in

defining relative clauses.

There are three cases for


Subjective (who, that, which)

Objective (who, whom, that, which, where, when, why)

Possessive (whose)

The antecedent refers to the

noun that the relative stands for

in the clause.

Ex. An English student is someone who studies literature.


Analyzing english grammar

Combine the set of simple sentences into a single

sentence, using a relative. You may change the order of

the clauses.

English tourists like to visit the Riviera.

The Riviera is warmer and sunnier than England.

We want to get rid of the bookshelf.

Uncle George gave us the bookshelf.

    Ex. Emily is running around the house.
