Relative Clauses - who, whose, where, which

Average: 3.4 (162 votes)

Let's take an intermediate level look at relative clauses.

A relative clause tells us which thing or person the speaker means.

"The man who works in the bank is my brother" - 'who works in the bank' tells us which man.

We use who in relative clauses for a person. Who is followed by a verb.
We use whose in relative clauses instead of his/hers/theirs. Whose is followed by a noun.
We use where in relative clauses to talk about a place. Where is followed by a noun or pronoun.
We use which (and that) in relative clauses to talk about a thing.
