You have a careless spelling error that should be addressed first.

You seem to frequently misspell very simple, basic words. The forum has a built-in spell checker. If you see a word underlined in red, that's a clue that it's probably spelled incorrectly.

Occasionally there may be a word that the spell check dictionary doesn't recognize, which may yield a false red underline, but that's rare and happens only with very uncommon words.

Could you please tell me which word's spelling is incorrect? It doesn't indicate anything if you are using this site on your phone. I think it's "whichever."

If your spellchecker doesn't underline the word we're talking about, there is something wrong with the spellchecker.

It probably wouldn't have underlined "which ever" because both are English words, spelt correctly and it won't know that the right word was "whichever".

(If you still can't work out which word we're talking about, there is a big hint in the first sentence of this post.)

Sorry, I couldn't figure out that which word it was. Could you please help? Is it "whenever?"

You don't have to figure it out because post#5 already pointed it out.

It doesn't work in Google Chrome for Android.

You've fixed that error but you've now repeated the other error which you corrected in post #6! You're not dumb - you're just careless sometimes.

"Whenever Tom touches his girlfriend she jerks. She doesn't like Tom touching her so she jerks or jerks her hand or leg whichever part he touches her on."

But you never said that "which ever" was incorrect so I thought that it didn't matter whether it was "whichever" or "which ever". Sorry for this.

Yes I did. Here's what I said in post #4:

"It probably wouldn't have underlined "which ever" because both are English words, spelt correctly and it won't know that the right word was "whichever".

No one has corrected the OP's sentence, so I try.

'Whenever Tom touches his girlfriend, she jerks. She doesn't like Tom touching her, so she jerks away whatever part he touches.'

not a teacher

Perhaps the first sentence works better with "she flinches".
