Adjective clauses

Adjective clauses are also called relative clauses. An adjective clause does the same purpose as an adjective. That means it modifies a noun in another clause.

The adjective or relative clause should go immediately after the noun it modifies.

Study the example given below.

  • Meera is my classmate. She is an accomplished dancer.

We can combine these two clauses using the relative pronoun who.

  • Meera, who is an accomplished dancer, is my classmate. (Here the relative / adjective clause ‘who is an accomplished dancer’ modifies the noun Meera and goes immediately after it.)
  • OR Meera, who is my classmate, is an accomplished dancer. (Here the relative clause ‘who is my classmate’ modifies the noun Meera and goes immediately after it.)
