Non-defining Relative Clause

English Grammar Index

Non-defining Relative Clause :

These clauses follow a noun which does not need definition or explanation. They give some extra information about this person or thing. But the information is not essential. We can omit it losing the message. Commas are used. We put a comma between the noun and its clause and at the end of the clause if the sentence continues.

Examples :

  1. Gopal, who spoke French well, came and met me.

  2. Ram, whom everybody liked, was the team captain.

  3. Sita, whose pain is now worse, call a doctor.

  4. Ravi, who won last year, hopes to win again.
