Adjective Clause (or Relative Clause or Subordinate Clause)

As you know by now an Adjective is a describing word that modifies the meaning of a noun and is placed before a noun.

An adjective clause is a subordinate clause used to modify a noun or a pronoun. The Adjective Clause has a similar character like an adjective because the clause does the same job, but consists of a FEW words, whereas the adjective consists of ONE word only. As the clause works like an adjective it is called adjective clause! Got it?

The clause is placed after the noun it describes.
