What is a relative clause? A relative clause is one kind of dependent clause.
It has a subject and verb, but can’t stand alone as a sentence.
It is sometimes called an “adjective clause” because it functions like an adjective—it gives more information about a noun.
This is information that tells us who or what we are talking about.
We usually use a relative pronoun or adverb to start a defining relative clause:
who, which, that, when, where or whose. For example: She lives in New York, which she likes.
A relative clause can be used to give additional information about a noun.
They are introduced by a relative pronoun like ‘that’, ‘which’, ‘who’, ‘whose’, ‘where’ and ‘when’.
