Relative subordinate clause

Share&Save

Learn the theory

The relative clause follows after a noun. The relative clause gives extra information about the noun.

  • Dit is de jas die ik gisteren heb gekocht.

  • Daar loopt het meisje dat naast mij woont.

  • Dit is de film waarin de beroemde acteur speelt.

  • Yvonne is een vrouw met wie ik regelmatig praat.

die for de woorden (de jas)

dat for het woorden (het meisje)

waar + prepositie for objecten met een prepositie.

prepositie + wie for personen met een prepositie.

The verbs come at the end of the relative clause, since it is a subordinate clause. Interested in Dutch word order? Why not take a look at our Dutch Word Order Course?
