For the purpose of building a dynamic user interface within an software application I wish to separate parts of a set of phrases which would be in the form of the examples below.
- Customers who have never paid a dime.
- Vendors who are not very reliable.
- Products that are way too expensive.
Doing this is easy enough however I'm struggling for a term to describe the different parts of the sentence.
The first part perhaps would be the subject but what about the pronouns who or that (relative pronouns). Is there a phrase or term to describe the combination of the subject plus the relative pronoun that I could use as a single unit in discussion or documentation or am I better just to refer to it as something like a "customer pronoun pair" or "customer relative pronoun combination".
As far as the second part of the sentence (the non-bold parts in the examples above) I'm sure there must be a more common phrase but I could use some help in identifying what it is.
Another option perhaps would be to split the sentence into three parts to better describe the pieces but I'm not sure there is much value in it unless I could be convinced otherwise. My goal is to use these parts flexibly so that I can dynamically produce lists that appears something like the one below.
- have never paid a dime.
- are way too cheap.
- always pay on time.
