Is it correct to say "You which know the secret of my heart"? If yes, what is the difference from "You who know .... " ?

1 Answer 1


No, it's not correct to say "you which know". Your second sentence, "you who know", is OK, but clumsy.

  • Thank you very much for your help. How could I express the sentence : "You WHO know the secrets of my heart, give me a shining smile, one more time" in a better way? It's a song... Thanks! May 30, 2013 at 13:50
  • In a song, it's OK. But nobody talks like that. Normally relative clauses do not modify pronouns -- relative clauses are to identify nouns, and pronouns are for nouns that are already identified. May 30, 2013 at 13:55
  • you THAT now? better or not than you WHO know? Jun 5, 2013 at 14:31
