Literacy

Today we are going to be looking at relative clauses. A relative clause is a type of subordinate clause that is often introduced by a relative pronoun. Here are some relative pronouns: that, which, where, when, whose and who.

We use relative clauses to give extra information about the noun in the sentence.

E.g. The dog, who has brown fur, chased me down the street.

Here the relative clause is in the middle of the sentence so we use a pair of commas on either side to punctuate it.

Notice you can remove the relative clause and the sentence will still make sense.

Relative clauses can also come at the end of a sentence.

E.g. Joe is the man who delivers the milk.
