• 关系代词和关系副词必须位于从句之首

  • (一)定语从句一般由关系代词和关系副词引导

    1、关系代词:who whom, whose, which, that, as

    2关系副词:when where, why

    关系代词和关系副词必须位于从句之首,主句先行词之后,起着连接先行词和从句作用, 同时在从句中又充当句子成分。

    e.g. she is the girl

    who sings best of all.(关系代词who从句中作主语)

    the comrade

    with whom i came knows french.(whom在从句中作介词with的宾语)

    3、关系代词和关系副词的用法:1)当先行词为人时用who 作主语,whom作宾语;2)当先行词为物或整个句子时用which ,可作主语或宾语;3)先行词为人、物时用that ,可作主语或宾语;4)whose用作定语可指人或物;5)关系副词when(指时间,在定语从句中作状语where(指地点在定语从句中作地点状语),why(指原因,在定语从句中作原因状语)。



    e.g. i was the only person in our office

    who was invited.(去掉定语从句意思就不完整)


    e.g. tom’s father,

    who is over sixty still works hard day and night.(who引导非限制性定语从句,整个句子可分成两句来翻译)



    1)用that而不用 which的情况:①先行词为不定代词all, anything, nothing …;②先行词有最高级修饰,有序数词修饰;③先行词有only very, any等词修饰;④先行词既有人又有物时。

    e.g. there is

    nothing that can prevent him from doing it. 没有什么能阻止他不干那件事。


    first place that they visited in guilin was elephant trunk hill. 桂林他们所参观的第一个地方象鼻山。

    this is the

    best film that i have ever seen. 这部电影我看过的最好的一部。

    mr smith is the

    only foreigner that he knows. 史密斯先生他认识的唯一外国人。

    2)用which而不用 that情况:①引导非限制性定语从句;②代表整个主句意思;③介词 + 关系代词。

    e.g. he had failed in the maths exam,

    which made his father very angry. 他


    this is the room

    in which my father lived last year. 这父亲去年居住过房子。


    ①as引导限制性定语从句通常用于the same … as such … as结构中。

    e.g. i want

    the same shirt

    as my friend’s. 我要一件跟我朋友一样的衬衫。

    such machines

    as are used in our workshop are made in china. 我们车间使用这种机器中国制造的。

    ②as引导非限制性定语从句既可放在主句之前,也可放在主句之后用来修饰整个句子。通常用下列句型:as is known to all, as is said, as is reported, as is announced, as we all know as i expect 等。


    as i expected, he got the first place again in this mid-term examination. 正如我所预料的那样,他在这次期


    3)as 引导非限制性定语从句时与which区别


    e.g. he made a long speech

    as we expected.

    he made a long speech,

    which was unexpected.


    e.g. tom drinks a lot every day,

    which his wife doesn’t like at all.

    2. 关系代词在从句中作主语时,从句的谓语动词单数还用复数应由先行词决定。

    e.g. the man who lives downstairs speaks english fluently. 住楼下的那个人


    the students who are in grade three are going to climb the hill tomorrow.

    3. 定语从句有时不直接紧靠先行词中间由一个定语、状语或谓语隔开。

    e.g. there is an expression in his eyes that i can’t understand.

    4. 引导定语从句关系副词有时可以用“介词 + which”来代替。

    e.g. october 1 1949 was the day on which ( = when ) the people’s republic of china was founded.

    5. 当定语从句中谓语动词带介词或副词固定短语动词时,短语动词的各个固定部分不要拆开。

    e.g. the sick man whom she is looking after is her father.

    6. 介词关系代词前只能用which和whom,且不能省略;介词句尾关系代词可有which, that, whom 口语中也可用who,且可省略。

    e.g. the man (whom/ who/ that) you were talking about has come to school.
