StructureEdit

Adjective clauses do like noun clauses represent a sentence that acts as an adjective in a larger sentence.

Example
She is driving the car which i like


Example Translation

Ëdhihsaömydhügnbjü adwilaj loymaömavy

The water which is pleasing me is falling

As it can be seen it looks pretty much like a normal sentence except its rendered into a adjective participle form, while verbs in various forms can be made into an adjective participle easily also sentences can as the verb comes last

To form an adjective clause simply remove the duplicated noun from the sentence, make the verb into participle and put infront of the modifying noun.
