- For Teachers
I know I have already psoted some questions about relative clauses and gotten great answers but all of a sudden, another question pops up, so please do not get upset with my dragging questions.
I know that the meaning of the two sentences below is the same.
"London, which we visited last spring, was exciting= The city which I visited last spring was exciting".
However, problem is that if speakers or writers already know which city or there is only one they are talking about in the context. Can I say or write like this "The city, which I visited last spring, was exciting". The city is not modified because the city implies "London" itself without relative clasue's modifiying and they already know it each other.
So, my point is that depening on speakers or writers' view, three sentences can be written as those forms and tell the same meaning?
1. London, which we visited last spring, was exciting.
2. The city which I visited last spring was exciting.
3. The city, which I visited last spring, was exciting.
Thanks a lot in advance all the time.
