Do you know the professor who is speaking at the meeting? （限制性定语从句）English is an important subject, which every student should study well. （非限制性定语从句）
二、 先行词不尽相同。限制性定语从句的先行词往往是某一个词，但非限制性定语从句的先行词可以是一个词，也可以是句子的一部分，甚至是整个主句，此时非限制性定语从句一般由which或as引导，as引导非限制性定语从句常用在as is said / known / expected / mentioned / reported / announced等结构中。如：
He has passed the college entrance examination, which makes his parents quite happy.
As is known to everybody, the moon travels round the earth once every month.
1． that 不可引导非限制性定语从句。如：
Her father gave her a computer for her birthday，which pleased her a lot.
2． why 不用在非限制性定语从句中，需用for which代替。如：
I told them the reason, for which I didn't attend the party last week.
3． 关系代词替代情况不同关系代词 whom 在限制性定语从句中作宾语时可用 who 代替 whom, 但 whom 在非限制性定语从句中作宾语时不可用 who代替。如：
This is the girl whom (who) I have been in love with for six years.
The young man had a new girl friend, whom he wanted to show all his love for.
She is the new student (whom / who / that) I want to introduce to you.
All the books there, which have beautiful pictures in them, were written by him.
1. 当“不定数量词 (如some, several) ／ 数词 ＋ of which ／ whom”表示“整体 (which ／ whom)中的一部分”的概念时。如：We saw many animals in the zoo, some of which are tigers．There are fifteen new players in our team, two of whom come from Canada.
My house, which I bought last year, has got a lovely garden.Qingdao, where I have been three times, is an attractive city to foreigners.
