The
Adjective Clause:

function like a multiword adjective, meaning that they are phrases that modify or describe nouns/pronouns.
Relative Pronouns

are usually introduced by
relative pronouns
such as
who
,
whose
,
whom
,
which
,
that
,

.

is laying in my lap with his ear inside out
is my beloved animal, Moose.

do not use commas

that phrases

Example:
"No one knew
that

a killer was already moving through the streets with them,
an invisible stalker
that

would go house to house..."
