Hello Rebecca .
Thank you for this excellent lesson .
I have an interrogation about punctuation .
Shouldn’t be placed a coma in the following sentence ?
1. “We send the cars that we manufacture outside the country.”
I see a second meaning :
We manufacture cars outside the country and send them to another location .
Thank in advance for your feedback
See you

    I checked out Engvid web site and found a lesson from Alex about “comma”.
    For the first meaning , shouldn’t they write this : “We send the cars ,that we manufacture , outside the country.” ?

    Friday, November 2nd 2018

      Hi Charleville,

      Actually, there is no need of a comma in this sentence; it should NOT be used there. The sentence means that every single car that we manufacture is sent outside the country, whereas the ones not manufactured by us (mnf.by a different company) MIGHT remain in the country (but not necessarily).

      Note that the relative pronoun “that” is only for defining only; it shouldn’t be used in a non-defining clause with a comma. Hence, if “that” functions as a relative pronoun (as in Rebecca’s example), it should NOT be preceded by a comma. You can check this page:
      https://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/pronouns/relative-pronouns
      Please also check the “Relative pronouns: typical errors” section on the page I have referenced for you.

      Alex’s video, time stamp: 6:45, “you must use WHICH /in his last example/” : https://www.engvid.com/that-which/
      While Alex might have made a mistake in one of his videos, I’m sure that we all understand that no-one is perfect. I also had to read my reply again before hitting the “submit” button, and it contained a few typos :)

      Hope this helps.
      Regards,
      David
