I have the next two sentences, and I'm asked to state the function and category of the parts in bold. I am introduced to the concepts of function and category, but I was applying what I learned about them on oversimple structures, but now I find these two sentences confusing, so I couldn't determine their category and function or to be more precise, I have an answer in my mind, but I'm not sure if it is acceptable. The sentences are:
- They are fond of bull-fighting, which I find quite repulsive.
I know that the part in bold has the category of non-restrictive relative clause, but I'm not sure about the function.
- My wife hated the fact that the children left their clothes strewn across the floor.
In this example, I guess the category is an appositive clause, but I'm not settled about the function, so please could you tell me the category and function of each part?
