用法
Both whatever and what ever can be used in sentences such as Whatever (or What ever ) made her say that? Critics have occasionally objected to the one-word form, but it is supported by extensive precedent in reputable writing. The same is true of the forms whoever, whenever, wherever, and however when these expressions are used similarly. In adjectival uses only the one-word form is used: Take whatever (not what ever ) books you need. ? When a clause beginning with whatever is the subject of a sentence, no comma should be used: Whatever you do is right. Otherwise, a comma may be used: Whatever you do, don't burn the toast. ? When the phrase preceding a restrictive clause is introduced by whichever or whatever, that should not be used in formal writing. It is regarded as incorrect to write whatever book that you want to look at; one should write instead Whatever book you want to look at will be sent to your office or Whichever book costs less (not that costs less ) is fine with us. See Usage Note at however, that
whatever 和 what ever 这两个词都可用在例如 Whatever (或 What ever ) made her say that?(究竟是什么使得她说那样的话?) 这样的句子里。 批评家们经常反对单一词形,但有声望作品的大量先例却支持了单词形式。同样地,当whoever, whenever, wherever 及 however 这些表述被用于类似情况时,其情形也是如此。 用作定语时只用单词形式:Take whatever (不是 what ever ) books you need。(拿那些你要的书) ? whatever 为句首的从句作句子主语时,不能用逗号: Whatever you do is right(无论你做什么都是对的)。 在其他情况可以用逗号:Whatever you do, don't burn the toast(不管你做什么,不要烤糊了吐司) ? 当先于一限定性从句的短语是由whichever 或 whatever引入时, that不能用在正式文体中。 这样的句子:whatever book that you want to look at(无论哪本你想看的书) 是被看作不正确的; 相反应该是Whatever book you want to look at will be sent to your office(你想看的任何一本书都将会送到你的办公室去) 或者 Whichever book costs less (不是 that costs less ) is fine with us(花费少一些的书比较适合我们) 参见 howeverthat
