Parts of the Sentence - Adjective Clauses
In using an adjective clauseThe adjective clause is a dependent clause that is used to modify a noun or a pronoun. It will begin with a relative pronoun (who, whose, whom, which, and that) or a subordinate conjunction (when and where). Those are the only words that can be used to introduce an adjective clause.
Source: Lesson 251, you should always place it as near to the word it modifies as possible. If you misplace the adjective clause, it makes a ridiculous sentence or one that is unclear.
I waved to my dog from the car that had just licked my face. = incorrect
(The car did not lick my face; the dog did.)
I waved to my dog that had just licked my face from the car. = correct
