GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Adjective Clauses?
The term 'adjective clause' (adjectival phrase, adjective phrase, or sometimes phrasal adjective) may refer to any one of three types of grammatical phrase. In syntax, the term adjectival phrase or adjective phrase refers to a phrase built upon an adjective, which functions as the head of that phrase. For example, the phrase much quicker than I is based on the adjective 'quick', and the phrase fond of animals is based on the adjective 'fond'. Such phrases may be used predicatively, as in They are much quicker than I (≈ they are quick) or they are fond of animals (≈ they are fond). When used attributively within a noun phrase, complex adjectival phrases tend to occur after the noun: I found a typist much quicker than I (compare I found a quick typist, where a simple adjective occurs before the noun). The words modifying the head adjective may be adverbs (much quicker, very pretty), prepositional phrases (fond of animals, happy about the news), or subordinate clauses (happy that you came).
