    Default which anyone who

    Hi,

    I looked the phrase "open house" in the Dictionary.reference.com and I found one of its definitions puzzling:

    a party or reception during which anyone who wishes may visit to share in a celebration, meet a special guest, etc.

    What does it mean by "which anyone who"? Is the "which" a typo in the definition?

    Thanks a lot

    It's correct.
    "Anyone who wishes may ... during the party."
    "This is a party, during which (ie. during the party) anyone who wishes may ..."

    "Anyone may participate in this forum."
    "This is a forum in which (ie. in the forum) anyone may participate."
