Using Adjective Clauses (#6):
Types of Adjective Clauses
 

Possessive Adjective Clauses

In addition to subject- and object-pattern adjective
clauses, there are also adjective clauses with whose.
In clauses of this type, whose shows possession.
It is always combined with a noun or noun phrase.

Examples:

1.  

The author is Jonathan Kellerman. She likes
the author's books best. --->

The author whose books she likes best is
Jonathan Kellerman.

The sentence with whose has an adjective
clause: whose books she likes best. In the
clause, whose is the relative pronoun and is
used with books. The clause modifies the
subject of the sentence: the author.

________________________________

 

The people will be glad to help you.
The people's names are on this list. --->

The people whose names are on this
list will be glad to help you.

Here, the adjective clause is whose
names are on this list. The adjective
clause modifies the subject of the main
sentence: the people.

     
2.  

I enjoyed discussing the author. We had
just read the author's latest book. --->

I enjoyed discussing the author whose
latest book we had just rea d.

Again, the sentence with whose has an
adjective clause: whose latest book we
had just read. The clause modifies the
object of the main sentence: the author.
