Can noun clauses be used as a direct object,an indirect object,prepositional object in a sentences then why these sentences are not correct? ?
I just followed the grammar rule.
a. I am listening to what they are saying.
b. I am talking to who won the tennis match.
C. That would be my reaction to whoever wins.
WHY THESE SENTENCES SOUND UNNATURAL. PLEASE EXPLAIN. Or just following grammar rule is not enough to learn English.
Note that what can have a similar meaning to that which, and whoever can have a similar meaning to any person who. Note the two ideas in the meaning.
Who has only one idea in it. It cannot be subject and object simultaneously.
