Hi there!

Can you be more specific about what information you need? Then I can give you a full answer! Would you like to know linguistically ( ie for university etc) or for language learning purposes?

But here is some info to start with:

A noun clause is a type of subordinate clause, ie it cannot stand on its own and is part of a main clause. There are different types of sub clauses, if you need more information on them just post it here!

There are four different kinds of noun clause:

1 That-clause = Everyone believes that Brad Pitt is the most handsome man in the world

2 Wh-clause =What Jennifer Aniston believes is not very important

3 Infinitive clause = My plan is to marry Brad Pitt

4 Ing-clause = I am scared of losing Brad if I don't move to Hollywood.

I hope that this is enough to start with, and that the forum has helped you.
If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to post something.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
What's the difference between noun clauses and complement clauses? which term is more accurate, noun clause or nominal clause?
Okay, relax. Let's take this slowly.

First off: "What's the difference between noun clauses and complement clauses?" ... This may sound like dumb questions, but I have to ask

1. Do you know what a noun is?
2. Do you know what a complement is?

If the answer to both of those is yes, the rest will be easy. If not, we'll take you through it.

In the sentene:"my plan is to amrry Brad Pitt.", there is no noun lause. a lause has to have a subjet and a finite verb. both are absent in the prvious sentence. how would you justify your stand?

Plan=noun
marry=verb

Isn't this correct?
I think that would be a noun phrase, not a noun clause, because the verb is in the infinitive. On the other hand "My plan is that I will marry Brad Pitt" does include a proper noun clause. (Though it suffers from being a particularly difficult plan to achieve).
