some characteristics of "Nominal Clause": (from the Grammar Bible)

Contrary to other types of subordinate clauses, the nominal clause completes the group of words that we call a main clause. Therefore, this "main clause" itself is grammatically incomplete without the subordinate clause.

With that said,

"It's terrible that he should walk out on his long-time girl friend." (delayed subject)


"I'm pleased that he gave me a big birthday gift." (adverbial clause)


"What I really need is three cases of cold Dr. Pepper." (what I really need is a nominal clause)
