Aloha, good morning.
We eat out despite (the fact) that it is snowing.
But for (the fact) that the resue team had came to me, I would have died already.
Can I omit "the fact" above because that-clause is noun already after preposition?
It's seek time.thanks no end.
If not for that the rescue team had reached me, I would have died already.
But for the rescue team, I would have died.
Had it not been for the rescue team, I would have died.
We eat out despite [something].
We eat out despite [the weather].
We eat out despite [that it is snowing].
It depends on [whether we like it].
"Despite what you have told me, I couldn't care less"
why not be the same with "that-clause" in which conjunction of "that" is the same as any "wh-words" in wh-clauses.
that, what, where, when, how are all conjunctions in their respective clauses. I still cannot figure the reason out. finger-crossed for somebody's insight. thanks.
