  13. 13. Grammar 13© Aptech Training Ltd. FZE Grammar Non-defining relative clauses In the previous units we looked at defining relative clauses. We saw that they define the noun which the relative clause provides more information about. She is the girl who lives next door to me. What can you remember about the grammatical rules for using defining relative clauses? For Aptech Centre Use Only
  14. 14. Grammar 14© Aptech Training Ltd. FZE Non-defining relative clauses It bridges communication gaps and builds relationships among associates, which helps build greater monetary, cultural and social values for the organisation. • The clause before the relative clause is complete and does not need the relative clause (i.e. it is non-defining) • There is a comma before the relative clause • ‘Which’ cannot be replaced by ‘that’ (who is possible for people) • The relative pronoun cannot be omitted For Aptech Centre Use Only
  15. 15. Grammar 15© Aptech Training Ltd. FZE Non-defining relative clauses Now look at an example in which the subject is a person: Aishwarya Rai, who was born in 1973, won Miss World in 1994. This is a non-defining relative clause. The information in the relative clause is not essential to the sentence: Aishwarya Rai won Miss World in 1994 is also possible. Non-defining relative clauses often start with the names of people or places; because they are named, they don’t need to be defined. For Aptech Centre Use Only
