    Cool where to put

    Hello,

    I'd like to know if "where to" is correct here, please?

    -He digs holes where to put coffins.

    Thanks a lot

    Will

    No. The most natural thing to say would be "He is a gravedigger". You could say "He digs holes for coffins" which is grammatically correct but not a very natural thing to say.

    No. He digs holes in which to put coffins.

    More simply, "He digs graves".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
