Hi, This is Angie I am not a fan of mistery novels but Sherlock Holmes is the most famous dectective all around the world. however, I would like being in that funny game

Hi Team,
Stephen : Well, before we do that I think we should go and register, you know, meet the other people THAT are playing.
Why does stephen use 'THAT' word not 'WHO'?

Hi Nizam Balinese,

This is an example of a defining relative clause. In defining relative clauses the relative pronoun can be 'that' or 'who' for people and 'that' or 'which' for things. So in this example it would be correct to use 'who' [answer amended to correct a typo].

In non-defining relative clauses we cannot use 'that' in this way.

For more information on relative clauses see here.

Hi Team.
Thanks to pointing these out to me.
Now I understand what the difference is between the defening relative clause and the non-defening relative clause.
But sorry, I'm still not sure with your answer.
How did you decide relative pronoun of the defening relative clause sample above would be correct to use "which"?
Wouldn't it be "that" or "who" because "Other People" in the sentence is the relative clause people and not relative clause things, isn't it?
Would you like to explain, please?
Thank you.

Hi Nizam Balinese,

My apologies! It is correct here to use 'that' or 'who' as the sentence refers to people. I'm afraid I mistyped in my earlier answer - thank you for pointing this out!

Hi Peter.
Thank you very much.

I enjoy mystery novels and films a lot. Of course, my favourite detective is Sherlock Holmes, I admire of his detective skills. I watched all Sherlock Holmes film, and all episodes of tv serie and read books about Sherlock.

Me too bro. I have the detective trophy from a summer camp. I have applied SH's skills.

Yes, I like them.
My favourite detective is Sherlock Holmes.

Can you explain construction of the sentence, please?
"I'm just having a cup of tea". As i'm understand grammaticaly it's Present Continuous tense, but I studied that word marker "just" used in Present Perfect.
Thank you for the answer.
