  • Tanda Baca pada Adjective Clauses

    Pedoman umum dalam Tanda Baca pada Adjective Clauses yaitu:
    • Jangan menggunakan tanda koma bila Adjective Clause diperlukan untuk mengidentifikasi noun yang dijelaskan olehnya.
    • Gunakanlah tanda koma bila Adjective Clause hanya berfungsi untuk memberi informasi tambahan dan tidak dimaksudkan untuk mengidentifikasi noun yang dijelaskan olehnya.
      • Henry whose wife works at a bank came to my house yesterday.
      • Alex, whose wife works at a bank, came to my house yesterday.


Contoh pertama menggambarkan bahwa Henry memiliki lebih dari 1 istri. Padakalimat tersebut pembicara ingin mengindentifikasikan istrinya yang bekerja diBank, bukan yang lainnya.

Sedangkan pada kalimat kedua, kita sudah jelas, kalau Alex memiliki hanya 1orang istri. Frase yang berada di antara koma hanya memberikan keterangantambahan saja. Tanpa frase tersebut pun orang lain sudah mengetahuinya kalauistrinya Alex memang bekerja di sebuah Bank karena memang istrinya cuma 1 itu.

Perhatikan contoh berikut ini untuk lebih jelasnya dalam penggunaan tanda komadalam Adjective Clause.
    • Soekarno, who is the first President of Republic of Indonesia, could deliver speech well.
Perbedaan antara Adjective Clause dan Noun Clause

Karena adanya kesamaan dalam beberapa kata pendahulunya, maka kadang-kadangantara Noun Clause dan Adjective Clause sering membingungkan.

Ada 2 macamperbedaan yang penting antara dua jenis Clause tersebut: perhatikan contohberikut ini:
  • Adjective Clause biasanya didahului oleh noun atau pronoun yang diterangkan.

    Adjective Clause
    • I know the house where he lives.
(where he lives mempunyaiantecedent the house, yang merupakan objek dari kata know)

Noun Clause
    • I know where he lives.
(where he lives adalah objek darikata know)
Preposisi yang mendahului introductory word adalah milikAdjective Clause dan bukan milik Noun Clause.

Adjective Clause
  • The woman to whom he has been giving money is a poor relative of his.
(Adjective Clause dimulai dengan to yang merupakan bentuk aprepositional phrase dengan whom dalam Adjective Clause itu. Dan To dapatdiletakkan di bagian belakang Adjective Clause. The woman, whom he has beengiving money to, is a poor relative of his).

Noun Clause
  • He gives money to whoever needs it.
(The Noun Clause dimulai dengan whoever, seluruh Noun Clauseitu adalah objek dari to, yang tidak dapat dipindah letaknya. Dan juga -ever-merupakan bentuk yang hanya bergandeng (mengikuti) dengan Noun Clause.
