    It's not my mother tongue, and I wasn't wrong: It's a relative clause and a noun clause. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

    It's not a relative clause. If it is, please identify the noun it's modifying.

    I'm sure he's a lovely person, victim of a arbtrary mob mentality - just like Zoe Quinn.

    Not all relative clauses modify nouns; this is a free (or nominal) relative clause.

    Quote Originally Posted by Concise Oxford Companion to the English Language
    The relative word in the nominal relative clause has no antecedent, since the antecedent is fused with the relative: I found what (that which; the thing that) you were looking for; He says whatever (anything that) he likes. Because they are free of antecedents, such clauses are sometimes called independent or free relative clauses.

    Always heard that referred to as a 'noun clause'. A google search did relate the two. I stand corrected.

    You gotta admit, it was somewhat fun.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    Me either. Some of his posts are odd, but some also have the ring of High Logic™ to them. IMHO, he does well at keeping the idiot factor somewhat subdued most of the time over there.

    Is Kzach voting for himself twice??? I'd say that's cheating, but on this site I consider it clever.
