*If the relative pronoun is followed by a verb, the relative pronoun is a subject pronoun. Subject pronouns must always be used.
*If the relative pronoun is not followed by a verb (but by a noun or pronoun), the relative pronoun is an object pronoun. Object pronouns can be dropped in defining relative clauses, which are then called Contact Clauses. 2. Two sentences:
Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. He wrote the Declaration of Independence.
Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of the Independence, was the third President of the United States. Essential/Restricted clause Nonessential/
Non restricted Clause Two Basic Types:
Essential and Nonessential - It gives essential information about a noun that comes before it: without this clause the sentence would not make much sense. A restrictive relative clause can be introduced by that, which, whose, who, or whom. You should not place a comma in front of a restrictive relative clause. Examples:
1. The table that you reserved is not yet ready.
2. It reminded him of the moments when they are still together. - It provides extra information that could be left out without affecting the meaning or structure of the sentence. Non-restrictive relative clauses are normally introduced by which, whose, who, or whom, but never by that. You should place a comma in front of them: Examples:
1. George fell in love with Marilyn, who lives in Alaska.
2. Ivan visited on his girlfriend's house, which is located in Batangas. A dependent/subordinate clause
that modifies a noun/pronoun
by telling what kind, which one or how many. First, it contains a subject and a verb. Lastly, it functions as an adjective,
answering the questions:
What kind? How many? or Which one? Definitions Example:
lives in the house next door
(verb) (subject) Next, it begins with a relative pronoun (who, whom, whose, that, which) and a relative adverb (when, where, why). Example:
who lives in the house next door Example:
She is the girl who lives in the house next door.
