L.C. To understand how to embed a relative clause within a sentence.
Remember yesterday we discussed special types of subordinate clauses that are given a different name - Relative clause.
Relative clauses relate back to the noun and usually start with one of the following words:
who, which, that, when, where, whose
Yesterday, we looked at using Relative clauses at the end of a sentence. However, we can put them into the middle of a sentence as well.
The girl put on her favourite dress.
This is the main clause. We can add more information or details to this sentence in order to improve our writing. Today we are going to this by using a subordinate clause.
The girl, who was going to a party, put own her favourite dress.
Make sure to notice the commas. Commas need to go at either side of the subordinate clause.
