Question and answer
Q: what is subordinate clause
A: Functions of Subordinate Clauses When a subordinate clause assumes the grammatical function of a noun phrase, that clause is said to be functioning as a nominal subordinate clause. [ Noun phrases, remember, can function as subject, object, complement, or even occasionally as adverbial. Some examples of nominal subordinate clauses we have studied already are in examples (12), (13), (14), (17),
and (18). Very often, a relative clause is embedded in a noun phrase, functioning as a postmodifier. As noted above, the relative clause is also marked by its distinctive formal characteristics. We have studied relative clauses already in of noun phrase postmodification (see example h) in the noun phrase section. Relative clauses in English may also assume a nominal function, as we have already seen in examples (12), (27), (28), and (29) above. ]
