  1. WHICH VS. THAT By: Brittany Tyree

  2. RESTRICTIVE CLAUSE-THAT • A restrictive clause is the part of a sentence that you cannot get rid of because it specifically restricts some other part of the sentence.

  3. Example: Gems that sparkle often elicit forgiveness. • “that sparkle” restricts the kind of gems you're talking about. Without them, the meaning of the sentence would change and you'd be saying that all gems elicit forgiveness, not just the gems that sparkle. • Hint: You don’t need commas around the “that sparkle.”

  4. NONRESTRICTIVE CLAUSE-THAT • A nonrestrictive clause is something that can be left off without changing the meaning of the sentence. • Think of it as additional information added to the sentence.

  5. Example: Diamonds, which are expensive, often elicit forgiveness. • Leaving out the “which are expensive” does not change the meaning of the sentence. • Hint: Nonrestrictive clauses are usually surrounded by commas.

  6. So remember, “You can throw out all the “whiches “ and no harm will be done.
