Friend, if I may use the word loosely, throwing terminology around doesn't neccessarily create a good impression. I read your posts and tried to offer my help as I saw them. It's just a helping hand. Judging from the above post, you need more than just knowing the terminology. Good luck!
Good luck!

Thanks. I'm working hard, trying to improve.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
English 1b3The varous definitions I have read say it is modified, which can only be a relative clause (or an appositive) can't it, since it is modifying a noun phrase?
I would say that it's usually a noun followed by a relative clause, but it could be a noun followed by a prepositional phrase or any other sort of modification.

Note the summative modifier I made up earlier. It has a participial phrase instead of a relative clause.
