Hi

Hi,
I did not understand when 'that' and 'which' are interchangeable and when not. Is there any article about the usage of them?
Thanks a lot

Hello Ebi Soleymani,

This is a question which relates to relative clauses. There are two kinds: restrictive (also called defining) and non-restrictive (non-defining).

In non-restrictive relative clauses you cannot use 'that'.

In restrictive relative clauses it is possible to replace 'who' or 'which' with 'that' with no change in meaning.

You can read more about these structures by using the links above.

 

Best wishes,

Hello everyone..
☆ Do you like gadgets and technology? Why or why not?
- Yes, absolutely. One of the things about gadgets and technology is that they should be about improving your life. Wheather this comes through making your life easier or helping you to get more from life.
No matter what issue is plaguing you in life, there will be a gadget that provides you with the assistance you need to make life more productive and enjoyble.

☆ What's your most important gadget?
- The most important gadget in my life is smartphone, without a second thought. It has many uses, it can be used for communication or to search information and issues around the world in the Internet and also for entertainment purpose I think.

☆ Would you like to own any of Dyson's products?
- Yes, I'd like to own one of Dyson's products in the video. I think the fan is amazing since there are no rotating blades, the air multiplier must be more consistent and steady and the breeze from the fan doesn't buffet us with short gusts of air like we use the domestic fan.
By the way, Do you know how much the Dayson Bladeless fan cost?
