THE ADJECTIVE SENTENCE. The adjective sentence occupies the place of an adjective, and may therefore be joined to

(1) The SUBJECT.
(2) The OBJECT ; or,
(3) ANY NOUN in the sentence.

The man who lived here died recently. Who lived here is an adjective sentence qualifying the subject man.

I remember the house where I was born. The object, house, has the adjective sentence, where I was born, qualifying it.

I put the horse in the stable which I built. The noun, stable, is qualified by the adjective sentence, which I built.

The adjective gentence is often introduced by a RELATIVE PRONOUN.

They that fly may fight again, which he can never do that's slain. Towards the west lies the fertile shore that stretches along the Adriatic. Ex. 48. Parse.-
