RESTRICTIVE MODIFIER



Also called a non-parenthetic expression, it is a word, a phrase, or a clause that limits, qualifies, modifies, or describes a word, a phrase, or a clause in a way that is essential to the meaning of the sentence. It is usually introduced by a relative pronoun who or that and cannot be deleted because the meaning of the sentence will be affected.
