    that

    Hi

    Can I use "that" in the sentence below: If I tried to paraphrase that sentences then ...

    Do I have to use "these"?

    cheers

    Re: that

    '(T)hat' does not work because what comes before 'sentences', a plural noun, does not conjoin clauses but modifies the plural noun. Only 'the', 'these' and 'those' can do that job.

    Re: that

    I understand that I could only use "that" if there was a "sentence" not "sentences".

    Thanks for replying!
