According to what I have been learning from my teachers of English, the structure should be like this:
Subject + who/which/ that + be + adj + Main Verb.
E.g: People who are extremely rich will buy these cars.
However, I often see sentences like this:
The minority of us lucky enough to have been born in the developed world take for granted universal education, an assured food supply and clean, piped water.
I know it’s grammatically correct not to use relative clauses in these cases, as I have seen people using this structure in both writing and speaking. The thing is, there’s no rule saying that I can use an adjective right after a noun without using a relative clause. Therefore, I’m not sure when I can and cannot use this structure. And I feel it’s weird if I say:
People extremely rich will buy these cars.
And I wonder if I use a relative clause in the second example:
The minority of us who are lucky enough to have born in the developed world take for granted universal education, an assured food supply and clean, piped water.
Will there be any change in meaning? I don’t know whether it is a minority of us who are lucky to have born in the developed world or it is that we are lucky to have born there but a minority of us take for granted such good things.
