Additional information relative clauses (2)

Перед тем как ознакомиться с данным уроком,

прочтите Unit 91.

(a) Предлоги + whom / which

В частях с 'дополнительной информацией' вы

можете употреблять предлоги перед словами

whom (о людях) и which (о вещах), то есть

вы можете сказать to whom, with whom,

about which, for which и т.д.:


- Mr. Carter, to whom I spoke on the phone last night,

is very interested in our plan.

- Fortunately we had a map, without which we would have got lost.


Однако в разговорном английском мы часто ставим

предлог после глагола в уточняющей части

предложения. Когда мы так делаем, то обычно

употребляем who (а не 'whom'):


- This is Mr. Carter, who I was telling you about.

- Yesterday we visited the city museum, which I'd never been to before.


(b) All of / most of и т.д. + whom / which

Рассмотрите пример:


- Jack has three brothers, all of whom are married.

- Ann has a lot of books, most of which she hasn't read.


Вы также можете сказать:


none of/many of/much of/(a) few of/

some of/any of/half of/each of/

both of/neither of/either of/

one of/two of и т.д.

+ whom (люди)

+ which (предметы)


- He tried on three jackets, none of which fitted him.

- Two men, neither of whom I had seen before, came into my office.


с Which (но не 'what')

Рассмотрите пример:


- Jim passed his driving test, which surprised everybody.


В этом примере which = тот факт, что он прошел

тест по вождению. Нельзя употреблять what вместо

which в таких предложениях:


- She couldn't come to the party, which was a pity. (а не 'what was a pity')

- The weather was very good, which we hadn't expected.

(а не 'what we hadn't expected')


О what смотрите Unit 89c.
