    Talking Newbie question on relative clause

    The following sentence:

    "The manual that I bought this morning will probably help."


    Is it the whole sentence "The manual that I bought this morning will probably help." is called the relative clause,

    or only the part "that I bought this morning" is the relative clause ?

    The relative clause is:"that I bought this morning" and the principle clause is:"The manuel will probably help."
