essential and nonessential clauses
In the sentence: Any employee who wishes to participate may contact our Human Resources Department.
According to our textbook answer, the essential clause is: who wishes to participate
If we were to change the sentence to: The employee who wishes to participate may contact our Human Resources Department.
Will the essential clause be the same or can we offset it with commas because it is now a nonessential clause.
Re: essential and nonessential clauses
You can't offset it because it is still defining the employee, IMO.
