Subject relative clauses (explanation + homework)

We use subject relative clauses to give more information about the subject of a sentence.

Relative pronouns who, which or that are at the beginning of a subject relative clause.

Who is used for people.

people

 

The boys who were at the bus stop are Mike’s friends.

Which is used for things and animals.

animals

 

Sticker button set. Icons for personal belongings. Vector illustration.

 

The cat which stood in front of my door was dirty and hungry.

The book which is on the top shelf is Mary’s.

That can be for people, things and animals.

The boys that were at the bus stop are Mike’s friends.

The cat that stood in front of my door was dirty and hungry.

The book that is on the top shelf is Mary’s.

 

The relative pronoun is the subject of the relative clause so we do not repeat the subject of the sentence in the relative clause, e.g.  The woman who lives next door is a teacher.  NOT The woman who the woman lives next door is a teacher.
