    My relatives

    Hello, I have a problem with relatives. May I ask for help ?
    Could you tell me which of the following sentences are correct or not and why ?
    - I can't remember the name of the village we visited last year.
    - I can't remember the name of the village that we visited last year.
    - I can't remember the name of the village which we visited last year.

    Is one of these sentences "more English" than the others ?

    Thanks for helping me.

    grammatically, the three are right...
    but the first two are commonly used...
    well, we had better ask the opinion of others!

    Although all three could be considered as correct, the first one does sound more correct than the rest would, and MOST commonly used.

    But where im from i would have said "I can't remember the name of that village we visited last year" :P

    - I can't remember the name of the village that we visited last year.
    In this case, "that" introduces an essential clause.
