13a. Defining relative clauses: (Mệnh đề quan hệ xác định) * Định nghĩa:Mệnh đề quan hệ được gọi là xác định khi nó cần thiết cho ý nghĩa của câu. Bỏ nó đi câu sẽ không đầy đủ ý nghĩa. (Mô tả những danh từ đứng trước nó để phân biệt với các danh từ khác cùng loại, làm rõ danh từ).Ex: 1. The woman who lives next door is a doctor.2. The hotel where we stayed was very clean.
14b. Non-defining relative clauses: (Mệnh đề quan hệ không xác định) * Định nghĩa:Mệnh đề quan hệ được gọi là không xác định khi nó không cần thiết cho ý nghĩa của câu, bỏ nó đi mệnh đề chính vẫn đảm bảo đầy đủ ý nghĩa.* Đặc điểm:Mệnh đề quan hệ được gọi là không xác định khi trước nó là 1 danh từ riêng, hoặc trước danh từ đó có các tính từ sở hữu (my, his, her, your, our, their,…) hay đại từ chỉ định (this , that, these, those…)Ex: 1. The Thames, which flows through London, is a beautiful river.2. His daughter, who sat next to me, sang well.
15* Note:_ Giữa mệnh đề chính và mệnh đề quan hệ không xác định có dấu phẩy ngăn cách._ Không được lược bỏ đại từ quan hệ trong mệnh đề quan hệ không xác định.which: có thể thay thế cho 1 mệnh đềEx: Marry passed her driving test, which surprised everybody.
16c. Relative pronouns with prepositions: (giới từ trong mệnh đề quan hệ) _Giới từ thường đứng trước whom (cho người) và which (cho vật).Ex: to whom/with whom/for which/to which/all of/ most of/ ….. + whom/which.Mr.Smith, to whom I spoke on the phone last night, is very interested in soccer.
17Although + S + V , main clause Main clause + although + S +V B. Connecting contrasting ideas: Although_ Chúng ta dùng các liên từ trong mệnh đề chỉ sự nhượng bộ khi chúng ta muốn nói rằng có sự tương phản xảy ra trong mệnh đề chính và mệnh đề chỉ sự nhượng bộ._ Cấu trúc:Although + S + V , main clauseMain clause + although + S +VCấu trúc trên cũng áp dụng đối với các liên từ khác trong mệnh đề nhượng bộ, như: though, even though.
18* Note: Nếu các liên từ although, though, even though được đặt ở đầu câu thì mệnh đề chỉ sự nhượng bộ phải được đặt ngăn cách với mệnh đề chính bằng 1 dấu phẩy. Khi chúng được đặt giữa câu thì giữa 2 mệnh đề không cần dấu phẩy ngăn cách.Ex: 1. Although the home team lost, they played very well.2. Even though it was raining, I still went to school on time.3. He still goes to school although he isn’t fine.
19Note: Khi dùng though, although, even though, ta không dùng but và ngược lại Ex: 1. Although she isn’t brilliant, she studies quite well.2. She isn’t brilliant but she studies quite well.Although + clause (S+V)In spite of + N / Noun phrase / V-ing
