Comma Usage with Relative ClausesSlide14

Restrictive Clauses

Don't use commas around a clause if it's

restrictive

.

It is necessary for the sentence to retain its intended meaning.

People who dislike kale won’t enjoy green smoothies.This refers to a particular group of people!

“That” will not have a comma before it.

I love reading books

that

are full of adventure because they take me away from my boring life.Slide15

Non Restrictive Clauses

Do use commas if the clause is

non-restrictive

.

It is not necessary to the meaning of the sentence

.My mother, who dislikes kale, doesn’t enjoy green smoothies.

This clause is not used to identify a certain one of “my mothers”. It is giving information that does not define the subject.

“Which” will always have a comma before it.

I love

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

, which

is full of adventure, because it takes me away from my boring life.Slide16
