"The one where Rachel finds out" is the title of the soap opera "Friends" the last episode of season 1.
How should I comprehend the "where"?
Thank for your help!
The one where Rachel finds out -- this is the title of an episode.
Please explain to me, Raymott, how you reached the conclusion that where in the title means in/during which. Thanks.
one could possibly - Could it not? refer to a room.
The room where Rachel finds out (sg).
Intuitions? My wife is a master of it, unfortunatelly.
I am just a student. Sorry for interrupt!
I still could not figure out the use of "where" here.
May I further ask?
That means, where = in which = during which???
That means for stating the place?
But the title of an audio programme here?
Could you please give some example for some of those uses?
I am chewing this PP and cannot decide which taste I feel more intensely. The spatial? Or the temporal?
Where? In the episode. In a virtual space.
When? In the episode.
By the time I have learnt to use the English language, I will have been a wise philosopher.
(To understand this point it is necessary to understand that 'where' does primarily refer to place. I'll assume you know this).
A simile is where you say one thing is like another. 'Where' does not imply a place.
This is the episode where Rachel find out he's gay. A TV episode is not a place.
'Wuthering Heights' - isn't that where Heathcliffe falls in love with Catherine. A book is not a place.
Is envy where you're jealous of what another person has got? The meaning of a word is not a place.
'Where' is often used where you can't think of the right word. A linguistic context does not refer to a place.
Thanks a lot!
Your examples help a lot!!!
