IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- We use relative pronouns and adverbs to introduce relative clauses.
- They have the same form than interrogative pronouns.
- They are also conjunctions since they are used to join sentences.
- They refer back to nouns and pronouns which are mentioned before.
- These nouns and pronouns are called the antecedent.
- Relative particles are positioned close to their antecedents.

- "That" is not used in non-defining relative clauses.
- "Who, that, and which" can be omitted in defining relative clauses if they are not the subject of the relative clause.

- We use commas to separate a non-defining relative clause from the main clause.
