    2. How to use the relative pronouns

    We usually place the relative pronouns after the noun or pronoun to which they relate. Relative pronouns for people, objects and quality agree in person and number with the noun or pronoun to which they refer.

    Мъжът, който дойде, е пиятелят ми.  The man who came is my friend.
    Жената, която се обади, беше майка ми.  The woman who called was my mother.
    Искам кафе, каквото пихме миналия път.  I want the same coffee that we had the last time. 
    Вземи всичко документи, които са на масата.  Take all the documents that are on the table.


    enlightenedWe often use relative pronouns with prepositions.

    Това е момчето, за което говорихме.   This is the boy that we were talking about. 


    Relative pronouns are used as linking words and can perform the role of conjunctions in the sentence.

    Ще дойда, когато е необходимо.  I will come when it is necessary. 


    enlightened"Колкото, толкова" corresponds to the English  phrases "as much as" and "as many as" and can be used with or without a noun.

    Вземи толкова яйца, колкото са необходими.  Take as many egg as you need.
    Работя толкова, колкото мога.  I work as much as I can.
