Son oraciones subordinadas adjetivas porque: Son parte de una oración principal Funcionan como un adjetivo. El nexo es un pronombre relativo. Supongamos la oración simple: The TALL man came yesterday Adjetivo The man came yesterday. The man is tall.
The TALL man came yesterday Adjetivo Aquí hay dos ideas sobre un mismo elemento: The man The man came yesterday. The man is tall. The man WHO is tall came yesterday Donde: 1.- El nexo de relativo WHO = THE MAN 2.- The man came yesterday es la oración principal 3.- WHO is tall es la de relativo 4.- WHO es el pronombre nexo de relativo 5.- The man es el antecedente. En lugar de poner un adjetivo delante del nombre, podríamos unirlas de la siguiente manera:
La oración The man WHO is tall came yesterday es una oración poco probable porque podemos reducir la parte WHO IS TALL a un solo adjetivo TALL, con lo que simplificamos, y por lo tanto preferimos decir: The tall man came yesterday Sin embargo, si queremos unir estas dos informaciones 1.- The man came yesterday 2.- The man bought the red car. en una sola oración, no podemos usar un adjetivo que exprese una idea tan compleja como The man bought the red car, y entonces se hace necesario utilizar la oración de relativo: The man WHO BOUGHT THE RED CAR came yesterday.
Dado que las oraciones de relativo son informaciones sobre un sustantivo (ANTECEDENTE), aquéllas siempre irán inmediatamente detrás de éste, y el orden de dichas oraciones siempre será ANTECEDENTE + PRONOMBRE + ORACIÓN DE RELATIVO RELATIVO This is THE MAN THAT I SAW YESTERDAY
Hay dos tipos de Relative Sentences, dependiendo del carácter del antecedente, lo que determinará la función de la oración de relativo. Non-defining: My father, who is 47, likes football very much. CARACTERÍSTICAS: - Si quitamos la oración de relativo who is 47, el antecedente sigue estando definido. - Van entre comas. - Siempre llevan el nexo de relativo (WHO, en este caso). - Se usan, sobre todo, en lenguaje escrito.
Hay dos tipos de Relative Sentences, dependiendo del carácter del antecedente, lo que determinará la función de la oración de relativo. Defining: There are 20 teachers. The teacher who is 47 likes football very much.

THE PROBLEM IS… Comparadas con el español, las oraciones de relativo en inglés presentan algunas diferencias: 1.- En español, siempre aparece el pronombre de relativo; en inglés, a veces no. La casa que compraste era muy cara. The house --- you bought was very expensive. 2.- Cuando hay preposiciones en la oración de relativo, en español aparece delante del pronombre de relativo; en inglés, habitualmente no aparece delante del pronombre de relativo. Hay que saber cuándo ocurre esto y dónde se coloca esa preposición. El profesor con el que estabas hablando era Bob. The teacher you were talking to was Bob.
THE PROBLEM IS… Lo que es necesario aprender: I.Defining relative sentences (sin comas). II.Definig relative sentences with preposition. III.WHOSE. IV.Non-defining relative sentences (con comas), con o sin preposición. V. Lo que = What ---- Lo que = WHICH. VI.WHERE – WHEN -WHY
Definition As the name suggests, these clauses give essential information to define or identify the person or thing we are talking about. Obviously, this is only necessary if there is more than one person or thing involved. Example: Elephants who marry mice are very unusual. In this sentence we understand that there are many elephants, but it is clear that we are only talking the ones who marry mice. Punctuation Commas are not used in defining relative clauses. Relative pronouns Sometimes the relative pronouns are ommitted...

Non-relative defining clauses add extra information about somebody or something which could be left out and the sentence would still make sense.
