So this Monday’s French grammar point at a lecture was Les pronoms relatifs simples. Even though it’s not that complicated, I still get confused about it. Subject. Object. Subject. Object. Forget about French, it’s hard in English even. I remember doing that in one of my linguistic classes.
Like its English counterpart, a French relative pronoun links a dependent or relative clause to a main clause.
I have tons of tabs open at the moment just so I will be able to fully understand this concept. MUST. READ. EVERYTHING. Not even tabs, there is also my grammar book right in front of me. I found this table at about education which might be helpful.
Indirect object (person)
which, that, whom
|Que||Direct object||whom, what, which, that|
|Lequel||Indirect object (thing)||what, which, that|
|Dont||Object of de
|of which, from which, that
|Où||Indicate place or time||when, where, which, that|
|Note: ce que, ce qui, ce dont, and quoi are indefinite relative pronouns|
I have a kanji test tomorrow morning so I am off to revise them. Meanwhile, I will leave more links with that grammar explanation ( although all in French), some of them even have exercises which you can practice with.
