Defining relative clauses - Inglês 10ºano

  1. 1. RELATIVE CLAUSES We can use relative clauses to join two sentences, or to give more information about something.
  2. 2. Relative Pronouns PEOPLE (PESSOAS) ANIMALS/THINGS (ANIMAIS/COISAS) Subject (Sujeito) Who (=That) Which (=That) Object( Complemento) Whom (=That) Which (=That) Possessive (Possessivo) Whose Whose (sometimes) Adverb (place)-> where (=in which) We use relative pronouns to introduce relative clauses, which tell us more about people ,animals and things. Whom is very formal and mainly used in written English. That is very used instead of who, whom and which.
  3. 3. A.Defining relative clauses Subject (people) • This is the man. He lives in Boston. subject verb • This is the man who(/that lives in Boston. • This is the man who/that he lives in Boston.

  10. 10. Defining and Non-defining A defining relative clause tells which noun we are talking about: e.g. I like the person who lives next door. (If I don’t say ‘who lives next door’, then we don’t know which person I mean.) A non-defining relative clause gives us extra information about something. We don’t need this information to understand the sentence. e.g. I live in London, which has some fantastic parks. (Everybody knows where London is, ‘which has some fantastic parks’ is extra information.)
  11. 11. DEFINING NON-DEFINING That often replaces who, whom or which; We can omit the relative pronoun (object); No commas. We use defining relative clauses mostly in oral English. We can’t use that; We can’t omit the relative pronoun (object); extra information is between commas. We use non-defining relative clauses mostly in written English.
