Dependent Clause 2

Adjectival Clause


An Adjectival Clause is a dependent clause which modifies a noun.

Example: Mary, a woman from the South Bronx, went to the store.

“a woman from the South Bronx”  cannot stand alone as a sentence and therefore is a dependent clause.  In addition, it gives us more information about the woman.
