Relative pronouns

Relative pronouns are pronouns such as "that", "which", and "who", used in order to make long noun phrases. In Japanese, they are called 関係代名詞 (kankeidaimeishi). Relative pronouns don't exist in Japanese, and JHS 3rd grade students often find the topic difficult.

  • The bus that I take to school is red.
  • I know the woman who teaches English.
  • The book which he wrote is very interesting.
