English Grammar Explanations - Relative clauses

Relative pronouns are associated as follows with their preceding noun:

Preceding noun Relative pronoun Examples a person who(m)/that, whose - Do you know the girl who ..

- He was a man that ..
- An orphan is a child whose parents ..
a thing which†/that, whose - Do you have a computer which ..
- The oak a tree that ..
- This is a book whose author ..

If the relative pronoun is followed by a verb, the relative pronoun is a subject pronoun. Subject pronouns must always be used.

Relative Clause

There are three main types of dependent clauses: relative, noun, and adverbial.

A relative clause is an adjective clause that describes the noun. It is important to remember that a relative clause is not a complete thought! They are used in sentences to further describe the noun.

You can identify a relative clause by looking for three main components:
1.It will contain a subject and a verb.

2.It will begin with a relative pronoun or relative adverb. These would include 'who,' 'whom,' 'whose,' 'that,' and 'which' for a pronoun and 'when,' 'where,' or 'why' for an adverb. Looking for these signal words can help you identify this type of clause!

3.The relative clause will function as an adjective, answering questions about the noun, such as: 'Which one?' 'What kind?' 'How many?'

What Is a Predicate?

Defining a Predicate

Simply put, the predicate of a sentence is the part that modifies the subject in some way. Because the subject is the person, place, or thing that a sentence is about, the predicate must contain a verb explaining what the subject does.

An appositive is shorter than a relative clauses. It seems to be a derived relative clause because the wh-word and the verb be are deleted. Most appositives are derived from nonrestrictive relative clauses but there are also restrictive appositives:

An appositive is essentially a modifying clause from which a relative pronoun and a linking verb have been removed. Appositives are commonly used for combining ideas. In writing, we usually set them off with a pair of commas.

Juanita Broaddrick, an Arkansas nursing home operator, told NBC's Lisa Myers she was raped by Clinton.

Eileen Wellstone, 19-year-old English woman who said Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near the Oxford where the future President was a student in 1969.

In 1972, a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, a law student at the college.

In 1974, a female student at the University of Arkansas complained that then-law school instructor Bill Clinton tried to prevent her from leaving his office during a conference. She said he groped her and forced his hand inside her blouse. She complained to her faculty advisor who confronted Clinton, but Clinton claimed the student ''came on'' to him. The student left the school shortly after the incident. Reached at her home in Texas, the former student confirmed the incident.

Elizabeth Ward, the Miss Arkansas who won the Miss America crown in 1982, told friends she was forced by Clinton to have sex with him shortly after she won her state crown. Last year, Ward, who is now married with the last name of Gracen (from her first marriage), told an interviewer she did have sex with Clinton but said it was consensual. Close friends of Ward, however, say she still maintains privately that Clinton forced himself on her.

Paula Corbin, an Arkansas state worker, filed a sexual harassment case against Clinton after an encounter in a Little Rock hotel room where the then-governor exposed himself and demanded oral sex. Clinton settled the case with Jones recently with an $850,000 cash payment.

The list goes on and on and on.....

Why would you vote for a woman that would put up with this POS

Long ago, humorists Mark Twain and Will Rogers distrusted politicians who lied and became rich. They would jab the politicians with humor. For decades, Americans celebrated these humorists.

No red-blooded American wanted to help corrupt politicians fleece the citizens. We were too street-wise for that.

Now something has changed. Now the dishonest, rich, establishment politician can be the favorite with voters.

Odd. Something has happened. It is a new, confused, gullible country. Now the carnival salesman sees the citizens as easy marks who buy colored water. Promise the citizens the sky, get their dollars/votes, and the salesman/politician can walk off with big money.

It is the encore of Animal Farm. The corrupt politicians get rich while they pillage the country.
