Relative Clause


Hi I've learned how to use relative clauses and what is the difference in meaning between defining and non-defining relative clauses but I do not differentiate between the meeting which is scheduled tomorrow and the meeting, which is~


For example, the meeting which is scheduled tomorrow is cancelled. The meeting, which is scheduled tomorrow, is cancelled.


I think there is no difference in meaning but different view of speakers, or the speaker thinks that the meeting is already mentioned before so it is not needed to be modified. Am I right? Or there are always huge meaning differences between them.

I see no difference between the two, but to be completely clear you could always write"Tomorrow's meeting is cancelled".

I love the simplicity and clarity of this, Lindsey. It's a great example of eliminating unneeded words to clarify the message. Steven ListFeb 05 '12 at 15:19
