that modify a noun phrase,
most commonly a noun. We use relative clauses to give additional information about something without starting another sentence. Which are the relative pronouns? What is a relative
pronoun? Examples Generally, there are two types
of relative clauses: restrictive
(defining) clause and
clause. Relative pronouns that introduce a restrictive relative clause ARE NOT separated from the main clause by a comma.
Restrictive relative clauses (also known as defining relative clauses) add essential information about the antecedent in the main clause.
