  1. Adjective Clauses who, that, which, whom Presented by Melissa Michelson

  2. Write longer, more fluent sentences --> Use adjective clauses! These short sentences can be combined with the main clause to form one long sentence. They become adjective clauses.

  3. What’s an adjective clause (aka: relative clause)? Adjective: 1 word to describe a noun Clause: group of words with subject and verb Adjective clause: • group of words that starts with a relative clause pronoun (that, which, who, whom…) • whole clause describes a singular or plural noun in a main (independent) clause • adj clause has its own subject and verb • adj clause comes right after the noun it modifies

  4. restrictive(essential) explains exactly which noun ex A: I want to live in the house that is near the beach. ex B: The house that is near the beach sells for $1 million. non-restrictive (not essential) = extra information about noun ex C: I can’t afford to buy the beach house, which sold for $1 million. ex D: The beach house, which is too far from work, isn’t practical. 2 types of adjective clauses

  5. I want to live in a house that is near the beach. The house that is near the beach sells for $1 million. I can’t afford to buy the beach house, which sold for $1mil.
