Brief lesson
Who, which et that sont des pronoms relatifs. Ils servent à reprendre un nom ou groupe
nominal ou un bout de phrase pour éviter une répétition.
Who et which
Ils peuvent se traduire par « qui » en français.
On utilise who pour remplacer un nom de personne et which pour un objet ou un animal.
Exs : The man who arrived is the President. This is the camera which took the picture. =>
dans les 2 cas the man et the camera font l’action dans ces phrases.
Il peut se traduire par « que » en français.
On l’utilise pour remplacer une personne ou une chose mais ici ce n’est pas elle qui fait
Ex : The movie that I saw last night was amazing ! => the movie ne fait pas l’action c’est moi
qui est regardé le film la nuit dernière.
Remarques :
En anglais américain, that peut s’utiliser comme which. On ne tient alors plus compte des
règles de qui fait l’action. Mais les Américains l’utilisent le plus souvent à l’oral.
Pour des lieux on utilisera where de la même façon.
