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?
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.
