FCE2 - Unit 17

Relative clauses

Monday/Tuesday's powerpoint on relative clauses is here

Defining and Non-defining

defining relative clause tells which noun we are talking about:
  • I like the woman who lives next door.
    (If I don't say 'who lives next door', then we don't know which woman I mean).
non-defining relative clause gives us extra information about something. We don't need this information to understand the sentence.
  • I live in London, which has some fantastic parks.
    (Everybody knows where London is, so 'which has some fantastic parks' is extra information).
