Relative Clause

What do we mean with "Extended Relative Clauses? Thanks

  • Hello @fcuculo633

    A relative clause is a clause that is attached to an antecedent by a relative pronoun such as who, which, or that.
    E.g. "I don't like the clown that has a big red nose"

    I wonder if by 'extended relative clause', you are referring to an embedded clause, which is in the middle of the sentence.
    E.g. "Jame, who scored the winning goal, was congratulated"

    I hope this helps, but you can find a full glossary of grammatical terms here: https://public.oed.com/how-to-use-the-oed/glossary-grammatical-terms/
