English Phrases
  • What is different from other relative pronouns.
    Other relative pronouns usually refer to a noun that comes before.
      I gave her the money that she needed.
      The thing that I'd like most is a home computer.
      (That refers to— repeats the meaning of— the money and the thing.)
      We use what as [noun + relative pronoun] together.
      I gave her what she needed. (What = the money that.)
      What I'd like most is a home computer. (What = the thing that.)
  • Do not use what with the same meaning as that.
      You can have everything (that) you like.
      (NOT . . . -everything what you like.)
      The only thing that makes me feel better is coffee.
      (NOT The only thing what . . .)
      We use which, not what, to refer to a whole sentence that comes before.
      _^ -1
      'Sally married George,' which made Paul very unhappy.
      (NOT. . . -what made Paul very unhappy.)
