  2. 2. Adjective Clauses<br />He is afraid of cats which/that are pink.<br />The lion which he saw was pink.<br />What other words could be used here?<br />
  3. 3. Adjective Clauses<br />He is afraid of the lion whose mane is pink.<br />Why use whose?<br />The lion possesses/ “owns”<br />The mane. <br />Subject of the clause – “mane”<br />
  4. 4. Adjective Clauses<br />He is afraid of the lion who has a pink mane. <br />Why use who?<br />Because it is the <br />subject of the clause.<br />Subject of the clause – “who”<br />
  5. 5. Object of a Preposition<br />The woman with whom I talked said she loves purple dogs. (Formal)<br />The woman I talked with said she loves purple dogs. (Informal- more common)<br />
  6. 6. Where in Adj. Clauses?<br />“The woman who owns the purple dog lives in the house (where, in which, which, that,0) I used to live (in).”<br />Notice – NEVER “in that I used to live.” Also, you must have an “in” at the end of the clause if you use a “that” in the beginning. <br />
  7. 7. When in Adj. Clauses?<br />“There was a day (when, on which, that, 0)<br />I saw the woman painting the poor dog purple.”<br />Notice – You can use “that” without a preposition at the end of the clause. <br />
  8. 8. Punctuating Adj. Clauses<br />Purple dogs, which are crazy, often bite other dogs. <br />Purple dogs which are crazy often bite other dogs. <br />The question is, “Do we need it?” What’s the difference in meaning?
