Identifying Adjective Clauses

adjectivesAdjective Clauses are dependent clauses that modify a noun.  They are used to give additional or background information on the nouns they are describing.  Adjective Clauses always follow the nouns that they are modifying, but they are not necessarily used directly after the noun.  Most Adjective Clauses begin with a relative pronoun “who, which, that” or a relative adverb “when, where, why” so you can easily identify them in a sentence.  Check out some of the links below to learn how to identify and practice writing Adjective Clauses.
