Grade 10 Grammar Lesson 32 Relative clauses Other relative pronouns (1)

  •  We use a relative clause beginning whose + noun for something belonging to or associated with someone or something. We can use whose in both defining and non-defining clauses.
  •  We can use where (place) and when (time) as relative pronouns, but it’s also possible to use a preposition + which.
  •  We can also use where and when in non-defining clauses.
  • After a preposition, we can’t use who instead of whom.
  •  If the verb in the relative clause is a two or three word verb (E.g. fill in, look after, look upto etc), we don’t usually put the preposition before the relative pronoun.
