I have a question. Should I say; The place where I went or The place where I went to?

  • are you asking how to start a sentence or how to refer to a place you've been? – Andrew Jan 10 '14 at 18:48

    The question is perfectly clear to me. Had I not been injuncted by a higher power, I would have answered as follows. 'The place where I went' is good, grammatically-correct, English, and perfectly comprehensible. If you want to add a 'to' (which personally I wouldn't, as I don't like sentences that end with prepositions) that would also be considered good grammar, except you would need to leave out the the 'where'. You might just about get away with 'The place to where I went' but 'The place to which I went' sounds much better. – WS2 Jan 10 '14 at 19:13

    @WS2 I second that. Sure, there were typos in it and such but as a question it is totally fine... – Emanuel Jan 10 '14 at 19:32
  • maybe @KitFox will tell us, why exactly it was clo.. I mean, put on hold – Emanuel Jan 10 '14 at 19:33

    Actually this has been asked before, in a number of different ways, and the answer has always stayed the same, so WS2 would only be duplicating previous effort here. See e.g. the answers to this question. – RegDwigнt Jan 10 '14 at 21:51
