I've put a mark on the map where I think we should go for a picnic.( Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)


Hi, guys.

I have trouble analyzing the sentence above.

[1] Is "where I think we should go for a picnic" an adverbial clause of place, or not?
[2] Is it possible that "where I think we should go for a picnic" is an attributive clause? If so, what is the antecedent?

I was hoping you could give me an explanation. Thanks a million.

    I'd say it was an adjectival clause qualifying 'mark'. There's an assumed present participle 'indicating where I think we should go etc.'

    Cross posted. I'm pleased to see I agree with Grassy.

    I've put a mark - SVO
    on the map - [adjectival modifier of mark.]
    at/on/in the place - [adjectival modifier of mark]
    [where (= to which (=relative pronoun)) - [adjectival modifier of place]
    I think we should go for a picnic. - [adjectival modifier of which (=place)]

    (Tediously crossposted and basically agreeing with Grassy)
