    Relative clauses –part one



    If we use a sentence like


    The police have found the boy


    it may not be clear which boy


    We can make it clear like this


    The police have found the boy who disappeared last week


    Who links the relative clause (who disappeared last week) to the main clause – The police have found the boy


    When we talk about people, we use that or who


    I talked to the girl that or who won the the race



    When we talk about things or animals, we use that or which


    I like the car that or which won the race


    That, who, or which can be the subject of the relative clause like this


    I talked to the girl who (subject) won


    That is the dog that attacked me


    Not : That is the dog that it attacked me



    That, who ,or which can be the object of the relative clause, like this:


    The card which (object) ken sent was nice


    The man that I saw was very rude


    Not: The man I saw him was very rude



    When that, who, or which is the object of the relative clause (e.g The card which Ken sent), we can leave them out



    The card ken sent was nice


    The man I saw was very rude


    Now look at this sentence with those: Susan is the woman whose husband is an actor (= Susan's husband is an actor.)


    We use whose in place of his, her , their, etc


    We only use it with people, countries , and organizations , not things. It has a possessive meaning. Here is another example



    The man whose dog bit me did not apologize


    (=The man did not apologize. His dog bit me)..
