do only relative pronouns.... (which, who, when, where) are used as noun modifiers to modify a noun??
NOUN+ PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE+ NOUN MODIFIER.... in this a prepositional phrase modifies a noun and acts as a noun phrase
and a noun modifier only modifies a noun...
is my above analysis right to understand a meaning of any given sentence??
I am happy to respond to your p.m. and answer this.
I must say, I am not sure I fully understand what you are trying to ask here.
The relative pronouns can begin a relative clause, which would be a clause that modifies a noun. The man who sells the bananas has left the building
. The man with whom I had an argument was my sister's friend
. The house in which Melville wrote Moby Dick is now a museum
Now, of course, there are many many other kinds of phrases & clauses that can modify nouns. See:http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-gramm ... d-clauses/
There are all kinds of adjectival phrases
--- prepositional phrase, appositive phrases, participial phrases, etc.
All adjective clauses
must begin with a relative pronoun.
I am not sure whether I answered your question or not. Is this what you were asking?
