Relative clauses – Придаточные предложения с и без who/that/which

Урок 93

Посмотрите на примеры из урока 92:

  • The woman who lives next door is a doctor. (or The woman that lives ...)

The woman lives next door.

who (= the woman) – подлежащее (subject).

  • Where is the cheese that was in the fridge? (or the cheese which was ...)

The cheese was in the fridge.

that (= the cheese) – подлежащее.

Вы должны использовать who/that/which, когда одно из них выступает подлежащим в придаточном предложении. Т.е. вы не можете сказать ‘The woman lives next door is a doctor’ или ‘Where is the cheese was in the fridge?’.


Иногда who/that/whichдополнение (object) глагола. Например:

  • The woman who I wanted to see was away on holiday.
    Женщина, которую я хотел увидеть, уехала в отпуск.

I wanted to see the woman.

who (= the woman) – дополнение.

  • Have you found the keys that you lost?
    Ты нашел ключи, которые ты потерял?

You lost the keys.

that (= the keys) – дополнение.

Когда who/that/which – дополнение, его можно опустить. Т.е. вы можете сказать:

  • The woman I wanted to see was away. или The woman who I wanted to see ...
  • Have you found the keys you lost? или ... the keys that you lost?
  • The dress Liz bought doesn’t fit her very well. или The dress that Liz bought ...
  • Is there anything I can do? или ... anything that I can do?
    Я могу чем-нибудь помочь? (досл.: есть что-нибудь, что я могу сделать?)

Обратите внимание на расположение предлогов (in/to/for и др.) в придаточных предложениях:

Tom is talking to a woman – do you know her?
→ Do you know the woman (who/that) Tom is talking to?

I slept in a bed last night – it wasn’t very comfortable.
→ The bed (that/which) I slept in last night wasn’t very comfortable.

  • Are these the books you were looking for? или ... the books that/which you were ...
  • The woman he fell in love with left him after a month. или The woman who/that he ...
  • The man I was sitting next to on the plane talked all the time. или The man who/that I was sitting next to ...

Вы не можете использовать what в подобных предложениях (см. также урок 92C):

  • Everything (that) they said was true. (not Everything what they said)
  • I gave her all the money (that) I had. (not all the money what I had)

What = ‘the thing(s) that’:

  • Did you hear what they said? (= the things that they said)
    Ты слышал (то,) что они сказали?
