I am trying to solve a word puzzle that contains several sentences, two of which are presented below, and I have to figure out the missing words represented by the variables
There is a
W3is near where the road bends which contains very important items.
For instance, the top of the
W3is on the counter.
What's stumping me is
W3. The only words I can think of that would syntactically fit for the first sentence are which and that:
- There is a
W2which is near where the road bends which contains very important items.
- There is a
W2that is near where the road bends which contains very important items.
But neither of those is syntactically correct for the second sentence:
For instance, the top of the which is on the counter.
For instance, the top of the that is on the counter.
It seems as though
W3 is both a noun and a "connector word" (not sure what the proper term is). It seems to be a noun because it apparently has a top side ("...the top of the
W3..."). And it seems to be a "connector" because it can be used in a similar context of which/that (which out of ignorance I am referring to when I say "connector word").
So my question is:
Are there words in the English language that fit the bill of being both nouns and "connectors"? If so, what are they called and what are some examples of them?
