İngilizce bir sıfat cümleciği (adjective clause) bir iyelik zamiri ile oluşturulurken “whose” kullanılır. Gördüğünüz gibi kullanım olarak, önceki öğrendiklerimizden çok fark yok. En önemli fark, whose kelimesinin her zaman beraberindeki isimle beraber kullanıldığıdır.

Yani "whose + isim" beraberce adjective clause'un başında kullanılır.

 

 

 

Diğer bir kural, "whose" omit yapılamaz. Ayrıca "whose" yerine "that" de kullanılamaz. Whose genelde kişiler için kullanılır. Eşyalar için kullanıldığına nadiren rastlarız.
