Relative Pronouns

304. A Relative Pronoun indicates a relation between its own clause and some substantive. This substantive is called the Antecedent of the relative.

Thus, in the sentence—

eum nihil dēlectābat quod fās esset(Mil. 43), nothing pleased him which was right,

the relative quod connects its antecedent nihil with the predicate fās esset, indicating a relation between the two.
