Focus on Syntax
• When you mention someone or something in a sentence, you often want to give further information about them. One way to do this is to use a relative clause. You put a relative clause immediately after the noun which refers to the person, thing, or group you are talking about. Relative clauses have a similar function to adjectives.
Meet Samantha, the girl I told you so much about.
This is the umbrella I bought yesterday.
• In relative clauses that is very often used instead of other relative pronouns, especially in a conversational style: Where's the girl that came here yesterday? (=...who came...)
He's the man that people like at first sight. (=...whom people like...)
She has boiled the potatoes that I bought in the morning. (=...which I bought...)
That is especially common after the following words:
all something any
little anything no
few nothing none
much every only
Is this all that is left?
The only thing that matters is to find our way home.
Have you found anything that belongs to me?
In conversational English that in such sentences is often left out.
He's a man people like at first sight.
Anything you say is all right with me.
Nothing you do will make any difference.
