16 - Place Time Reason

  1. 1. Instituto de Estudios Superiores Belén PROFESORADO EN INGLÉS Gramática Inglesa II 1 RELATIVE CLAUSES OF TIME, PLACE AND REASON In relative clauses of time, place and reason, it is possible to use when, where and why in place of relative pronouns.  Time: 1990 was (the year) WHEN we moved here.  Place: That's (the place) WHERE we stayed for our honeymoon.  Reason: Its central location is (the reason) WHY we chose this flat. NOTE: Relative clauses with when, where and why are usually defining but can be non-defining. Relative clauses starting with where are more often non-defining than relative clauses starting with when or why: The village of Baydon, WHERE I lived as a child, has now become part of the town. PRACTICE 60 IN YOUR NOTEBOOK, REWRITE EACH PAIR OF SENTENCES AS ONE SENTENCE, USING A RELATIVE CLAUSE WITH WHEN, WHERE OR WH 1. The early morning is the time. I work best then.
