- For example, using a tape measure to determine the distance (a javelin was thrown _) yields very similar results regardless of who reads the tape.
2. Only pay attention to the direction in life (that you yourself want to go _).
In 1 the antecedent is distance and a javelin was thrown is relative clause.
In 2 direction in life is antecedent and that you yourself want to go is relative clause.
My question is in 1 and 2 whether it is possible to use which - the distance which a javelin was thrown and the direction in life which you yourself want to go
Or should I use non-wh type relative (that-relative or zero relative) when the gaps are adverbs.
ex.) 1. A javelin was thrown 100 feet. 2. You yourself want to go north.
- the distance (that) a javelin was thrown and the direction in life (that) you yourself want to go
And if the latter is the case, are there any other nouns like these? - except place, reason, way, time-related nouns, and occasionally manner
And is it possible to use where in 1 and 2 and to which in 1 and in which in 2?
Thank you in advance!
