Expressing "related to..." with "you guan de"

It is important to express one thing in relation to another, and the "与……有关的" (yǔ……yǒuguān de) structure accomplishes this by linking the subject before 与 (yǔ) and the one after 与 (yǔ) together by using 有关 (yǒuguān)

Structure

与 + topic/subj. + 有关的 + noun.

Examples

  • 我和他分手了, 有关的事情我都不想知道. We broke up, I don't want to know anything related to him.
  • 他对中国很感兴趣, 中国有关的故事他都很感兴趣. He is very interested in China, he is interested in anything related to Chinese history.
  • 这个项目有关的资料都需要保密. Any information related to this project needs to be kept confidential.
