    relative clauses

    Hello,

    is it possible to say:
    "I was walking to which place I don't known"
    I mean I was walking toward a place which was unknown to me.
    It should be a lyric, so the meaning, but also the form is important because of the sound. That's why I wouldn't change the construction, if it is possible.
    Thanks. ripley

    Thanks ripley
    If it's a lyric, then you have artistic license to do as you please. :wink:

    What about?

    I was walking
    To which place?
    I didn't know

    I was walking to a place
    which I didn't know

    All the best, :D
