Pronouns 5: Relative Pronouns
We use relative pronouns to refer back to subject nouns that we have mentioned previously in the sentence. We can use these pronouns for people, places, things, animals, ideas…almost anything at all!
The good news is that there are not too many for you to remember. The most common are ‘which’, ‘that’, ‘whose’, ‘who’, ‘whom’, ‘whoever’, and ‘whomever’. (Sometimes we can also use ‘what’, ‘when’ and ‘where’.)
