Relative clauses – это определительные придаточные предложения, которые начинаются с

относительных местоимений (relative pronouns) или относительных наречий (relative adverbs):

who/that/which – который

whose – чей

when – когда

where – где

why – почему

Мы используем определительные придаточные предложения (ОПП), чтобы соединить два простых


предложения или дать уточняющую информацию о чем-либо. Мы используем ОПП, чтобы описать людей,
предметы, время, место или причину. Относительные местоимения стоят после существительного, которое
они описывают.

Пример:

The boy who won the prize was happy.

Those jeans which you want to buy are really expensive.

Относительные местоимения могут служить подлежащим (Subject)или дополнением (Object) в ОПП.


Когда отн. мест-е – субьект, за ним следует глагол. Когда обьект – следует существительное или местоимение.

Пример:

Do you know the man who talked to me? - Subject

The peaches that are lying on the table are tasty. - Subject

We will stay at a hotel which is next to the beach. - Subject

That is the film which is very exciting. - Subject

Do you know the man who I talked to? - Object

The peaches that you bought in the shop are tasty. - Object

We will stay at a hotel which my friend has recommended to us. - Object

That is the film which I like very much. - Object

Exercise: Read the sentences and underline the relative pronouns (Прочитайте предложения и подчеркните
относительные местоимения):

The house which roof is white belongs to my grandparents. – Дом, крыша которого белая, принадлежит

Относительное местоимение вводит придаточное предложение. Но иногда можно опустить это


местоимение, когда оно не является субьектом (подлежащим) придаточного предложения, а выступает
дополнением.

Пример:

Do you know the girl who he is talking to? – в придаточном подлежащее – he, поэтому who можно
опустить.

or

Do you know the girl he is talking to?
