  • 1. Compiled & Voiced by Nageswar Rao. A. English Teacher.
  • 2. Study the following sentences: Everybody knows that he is hardworking. He said that he was going. No body expected that he would pass. A man that has diligent habits is sure to succeed. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. People that live in glass houses should not throw stones at others. He is so poor that he cannot pay his school fees. He works hard that he may succeed. He is proud that he is rich.
  • 3. All the above sentences are complex sentences and having a subordinate clause. All the subordinate clauses are called “That clauses” as the subordinate conjunction is „that‟. But all the „that clauses‟ are not same. First three are noun clauses, next three are adjective clauses and last three are adverb clauses. Now the question is how to identify these clauses.
  • 4. Let us learn how to identify a noun clause: A noun clause does the work of a noun; so like a noun it may be: a) The object of a Transitive verb b) We get the clause as answer when a question is raised. Let us know how to identify an adjective clause: An adjective clause does the work of an adjective so like an adjective it qualifies a Noun or Pronoun. Let know how to identify an adverb clause: An adverb clause does the work of an Adverb; so it adds to the meaning of some Verb, Adjective or another Adverb i.e. modifies it.
  • 5. Study the following sentences: Everybody knows that he is hardworking. He said that he was going. No body expected that he would pass. In the above three examples „that clause‟ is used as an object to the respective verbs. This is the identification mark for noun clauses.
  • 6. Study the following sentences: A man that has diligent habits is sure to succeed. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. People that live in glass houses should not throw stones at others. In the above three sentences „that clause‟ have a noun as antecedents. This is the identification mark for Adjective Clauses.
  • 7. Study the following sentences: He is so poor that he cannot pay his school fees. He works hard that he may succeed. He is proud that he is rich. First sentence is an example for Adv. Clause of result. Second sentence is an example for Adv. Clause of Purpose And third sentence is an example for Adv. Clause of Reason.
