    relative pronouns

    Can a relative pronoun clause modify a pronoun? I mean.....

    "She who is standing over there is my sister."

    Does the above sentence make sense?

    Not a teacher.

    It makes sense, but it's a little awkward.

    "The woman standing over there is my sister."

    Re: relative pronouns

    Wotcha, if you want to ask questions on similar topics, please distinguish them in your thread titles, even if it's only by number: 'Relative Pronouns 1', 'Relative Pronouns 2', etc. Otherwise we might think you are posting the same question more than once, and not bother to open your threads.

    Thanks.

    That would have been an even better thread title, wotcha.

    Yes, but it's antiquated.
