Grammar Lesson #10Noun Clauses
A noun clause is a subordinate clause that is used as a noun within the main clause of the sentences. You can use a noun clause as a subject, a direct object, an indirect object, an object of a preposition, or a predicate nominative.
The following words can be used to introduce noun clauses:

how however if that what whatever

when where when wherever whether which

whichever who whom whoever whomever whose

why that
Practice:

Underline each noun clause (remember a clause has a subject and a verb) and then indicate if the clause functions as a subject (S), a direct object (DO) or indirect object (IO), object of a preposition (OP) or a predicate nominative (PN).
