Noun Clause as Object of a Sentence
May 20, 1999
A noun clause can be used in the same way as a single-word noun. One way to
use these clauses is as the object of a sentence. For example: "I dont know the
answer" can become "I dont know what the answer is"
Note how noun clause objects often begin with what, where, who, why etc..
Examples of noun clauses as the object of a sentence
|"I dont know him" can become "I dont know who he is"|
|"She didnt tell me her plan" can become "She didnt
tell me what she was going to do"|
|"I dont understand their feelings" can become "I dont
understand why they feel this way"|
|"I like his house" can become "I like where he lives"|
|Write a short paragraph (or some sentences) about the reason you chose to do something
important in your life.|
|Use three different noun clauses as object of three sentences. Begin each clause with
one of what, why, who, where.|
|Write a topic sentence, indent five spaces, and please, double space your writing.
