EVERYTHING (ALMOST) YOU WANTED TO KNOW (WHO WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS STUFF?), BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK. I am totally html inept, but will do my best to keep this blog supplied with plenty of syntax junk. The main aim here is to help my students (my future colleagues, in fact) come to grips with the syntax of English, even if they can't stand it.

Wednesday, October 19, 2005


It is common to use prepositions prior to the relative pronoun which (object of preposition). This cannot be done with any other relative pronoun.

- “in which” represents “in a pool” in the adjective clause. When placing it to the front of the clause (where relative pronouns always are), the preposition is maintained.

Other common relative pronoun/preposition combinations include: through which, from which, with which, on which, out of which, on top of which, under which, into which, etc.
The preposition can be placed at the end of the adjective clause (informal use).

- This could be more formally structured – “He took out his Rolex, for which he had paid a fortune”.
- When the preposition is placed at the end, the relative pronoun may be removed – “He took out his Rolex, he had paid a fortune for”.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.
