 An
adjective clause modifies a noun the way
 All relative clauses are adjective clauses.
 The noun modified by and adjective clause is
called the antecedent.

same way an adjective modifies a noun.
The noun modified by an adjective clause is
called the antecedent.
Los antecedentes: 2 tipos
 Definite or
exists
 Ejemplo:

 Indefinite
exist.
or doesn’t
 Ejemplo:

profesor que hable
chino.
 The antecedent is
indefinite, hence hable
(subjunctive) is used.
