How can I combine 2 sentences into 1 sentence?

He thought that I'm fool. That pissed me off.

Thanks

  • He thought (that) I was a fool, which pissed me off. He thought I was a fool, and that pissed me off, That he thought I was a fool pissed me off. – Khan May 21 '17 at 19:47
  • Fool is a noun that requires an article before it. You might use the adjective foolish without an article. – SovereignSun May 22 '17 at 6:04

Maybe this reference in section 6 could help, what you're looking for is a relative clause using "which" to give more information.

The word that in the second sentence refers to the whole previous sentence, but to combine using relative clause, you have to use which and must also have a comma.

He thought that I'm fool, which pissed me off.

    I think you've overlooked the missing article before "fool" - you might want to expand your answer to explain a little why it is necessary there. – ColleenV May 21 '17 at 12:21
  • Please edit your answer and include an article before fool. – SovereignSun May 22 '17 at 6:05
  • @SovereignSun Even though fool is normally used with an article, it's informally also an adjective, so grammatically speaking, I don't think that's necessary. – Gerry May 22 '17 at 7:04
  • @Gerry I know it as a noun and a verb only. – SovereignSun May 22 '17 at 7:20
  • @SovereignSun Please consult with official sources before making a position or fixing someone. – Gerry May 22 '17 at 7:23

You can combine you two sentences with a simple conjunction

He thought that I'm a fool.
That pissed me off.

as

He thought that I'm a fool and that pissed me off.
He thought that I'm a fool which (really) pissed me off.

  • Thank you for comments. Actually my first impression was something like "His thought about me being a fool pissed me off" . Is that correct ? – Melih May 22 '17 at 9:36
  • Yes, it can be understood that way also. – Peter May 22 '17 at 13:39
