    where?

    Hello guys,

    Please help. Just want to know if "where" is only used to point out a place? Can it be used in this sentence.

    - Regarding what happened last week where you feel from a stool,......

    Should I use "wherein" or there are better ones?

    Please advise.

    My advice to you is: Do not use "wherein" in either your written or spoken English. It is not only excessively formal, but it is also rarely used. It's enough to have that word as passive vocabulary so that you understand it IF you happen to see it in a very old or excessively formal text.
