Unit 23                                                                                                                          Grammar

•   Relative clauses / Participles

( Relative clauses )

• Relative clauses give us extra information about something/someone or identify which particular thing/person we are talking about. They are often introduced by the following words.

Use Example
which (for things and animals) Did you see the film which was on TV last night?
who (for people, and animals when we want to give them a personality) Tom Davies, who is appearing in concert in Reading this week, is with me in the studio.
when (for times) Do you remember the day when we met?
where (for places) This is the place where they filmed Citizen Kane.
why (for reasons) That's the reason why he's so popular.
whom (for people as the object of the relative clause) Is that the man whom we saw at the cinema yesterday?
whose (for possession) My next guest on the show is John Travolta, whose career goes back to the early seventies.


• When the relative pronoun (who, which, etc) is the subject of the relative clause, you do not need another subject.

I admire Jude Law, who always works hard on his films.

X   I admire Jude Law, who he always works hard on his films .

Whom is quite formal. It is natural in informal English to use who instead of whom, even when it is the object of the relative clause. After a preposition, however, we always use whom. Informally, we usually put the preposition at the end of the clause and use who.

Is that the man who we saw at the cinema yesterday?

Charlie Chaplin was a comic genius to whom all comedians owe a great deal.

Charlie Chaplin was a comic genius who all comedians owe a great deal to.

Where can be replaced by a preposition + which. Less formally, we can put the preposition at the end of the clause.

The theatre where/in which I first acted is somewhere around here.

The theatre which I first acted in is somewhere around here.

• We can do the same thing with when.

Do you know the year when / in which the first western was made?

Do you know the year which the first western was made in?


( Non-defining relative clauses )

• Non-defining relative clauses simply give us more information about something/someone. The sentence makes complete sense without the relative clause.

Use Example  
To give extra information about something/someone Ray Watson, who starred in Bandits, is considering making a film based on the life of Einstein.  


• Non-defining relative clauses are separated from the rest of the sentence by commas.

Megamonsters, which was filmed in New York, is a very disappointing film.

• We cannot leave out the word which introduces the relative clause and we cannot use the word that instead.

X Megamonsters, was filmed in New York, is a very disappointing film.

X Megamonsters, that was filmed in New York, is a very disappointing film.

Which can refer back to the whole of the sentence.

We finally got tickets for the concert, which was very lucky.

(It doesn't mean the concert was lucky. It means getting tickets for the concert was lucky.)


( Defining relative clauses )

• Defining relative clauses tell us which one of a group of things/people we are talking about. The sentence doesn't usually make complete sense without the relative clause.

Use Example
To tell us which one of a group of things/people we are talking about   The book which I've read was the best of all. The one who is wearing a blue shirt is Justin Timberlake, isn't it?


• Defining relative clauses are not separated from the rest of the sentence by commas.

This is the DVD which I told you about the other day.

• We can also use that to introduce the relative clause.

This is the DVD that I told you about the other day.

• We can often leave out the word which introduces the relative clause when it is the object of the clause.

This is the DVD I told you about the other day.

• Notice that we do not need a preposition when we use where or when.

The theatre where I first acted is somewhere around here.

X The theatre where I first acted in is somewhere around here.

Do you know the year when the first western was made?

X Do you know the year when the first western was made in?


( Participles)

• Present participles end in -ing.

Past participles usually end in -ed, although there are many irregular verbs.

Perfect participles are formed using having + past participle.

Use Example
To follow prepositions and conjunctions (present and perfect participles) By appearing in that cigarette advert, he damaged his acting career. After playing / having played video games all morning, I was really tired.
To explain the reason for something (present and perfect participles) Being quite good looking, Ralph decided to make a career as a model. Having seen the film before, I knew what was going to happen.
To talk about actions happening at the same time (present participles) Waiting for the show to begin, I felt really nervous.
To replace some relative clauses (present and past participles) Imagine being the person directing a big budget film! (= Imagine being the person who is directing a big budget film!) The person chosen for the part will be contacted by phone. (= The person who is chosen for the part will be contacted by phone.)
To talk about past actions happening in sequence (perfect participles) Having finished my homework, I decided to go to the cinema.
As an alternative passive form (past participles) Made to wait, the actor began to get very annoyed.


• You have to be careful that the participle and the rest of the sentence both refer to the same subject.

Watching TV, I saw a news report about Hollywood.

X Watching TV, a news report came on about Hollywood.


A   Circle the correct word.

1. The minister, which / who was appointed just last week, made no comment on the situation.

2. Isn't that the spot which / where the accident happened last night?

11. A very popular breed of dog is the German Shepherd, which / who is often used as a guard dog.

12. Blackpool Tower, which / that was modelled on the Eiffel Tower, is a very well-known landmark.
