Abstract: The paper discusses subordinate clauses in English, specifically, finite and non-finite nominal clauses and finite and non-finite adnominal relative clauses. Attention is devoted to the various syntactic features of these clauses, as well as to their different functions. Nominal clauses function as clause elements; additionally, they can function as postmodifiers. By contrast, adnominal relative clauses function only as postmodifiers. They provide either specific or supplementary information about the noun phrase head.
Keywords: subordinate clauses, syntactic features, nominal clauses, adnominal relative clauses
