Chapter 18 deals with relative clauses, of which two types are distinguished: adnominal relative clauses, which modify an antecedent (a head-noun), and autonomous relative clauses, without an antecedent. Adnominal relative clauses can be restrictive or non-rectrictive. Autonomous relative clauses can fulfil various syntactic functions within their sentence and can be modified by determiners (especially is) and quantifiers. In addition, the connecting relative can be used to connect sentences.
