Friday - Embedded Clauses
Look at Embedded Clauses PowerPoint slide to see how to form embedded clauses. Embedded Clauses are used to add information to simple sentences- this sentence should make sense if the embedded clause wasn’t there. Embedded clauses can use words such as when, where, who, which, that- we will mostly focus on using which and who today.
