Class Name Well Ordered Language 3 A/B
This week’s focus: WOL 3A Chapter 8
In preparation for Schole support class: This lesson is about relative (adjectival) clauses—we can also call them adjectival clauses. The relative clause has a subject and a verb, BUT it cannot stand alone. It needs a principal clause for it to function.
What this means is that it can’t live by itself even if it has a subject and a verb for example: “who watched the sparrows.” This sentence outside of its principal sentence “Matthias waited patiently for his chance” doesn’t make sense. But when you put them together then they make sense: “Matthias, who watched the sparrows, waited patiently for his chance.”
A few items to remember when dealing with relative clauses:
The relative clause is always placed directly after its antecedent. This way, the word group is placed neatly in its proper place in the sentence.
Many relative clauses begin with a relative pronoun such as who, which, and that, whom, and whose.
