Noun Clause


Hi guys!

I know adverbial and adjectival clauses, but sometimes i cannot figure out whether the clause is adv or adjc or noun.

Here an example is;

The village, where the film was shot is peaceful.

Which clause is this?

I'm confused between noun and adjective clause, because noun is the name of place (village = place =noun), but then i think sentence defines that village is 'peaceful', the quality of place (adjective), so this is adjectival clause. Where am i wrong?

Please clear me?

Also note that "I" is always capitalized. There are no exceptions.

You are correct. 'Where the film was shot' is an adjectival clause modifying (describing) village. 'Peaceful' is an adjective that also modifies village. Because the verb is a form of 'to be', it is called a predicate adjective.


You don't need the comma after village.
