  ESL 102R Week Seven – Adjective clauses Start with the self-check on page 54 to check understanding. Adjective Clauses Another way of sentence combining!   An adjective clause describes a noun.   Example: I saw the man who stole the bike.   An adjective clause is a  dependent clause . It is never a sentence by itself.   Example: I live in a house that has three bedrooms. Not:          I live in a house. That has three bedrooms.   An adjective comes BEFORE a noun. Example: I live in a  big  house   An adjective clause comes after a noun. Example: We live in a house that is very big.   Adjective clauses start with relative pronouns.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
