Expressing "related to..." with "you guan de"
|This article is a stub. Editors can help the Chinese Grammar Wiki by expanding it.|
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)
与 + topic/subj. + 有关的 + noun.
- 我和他分手了, 与他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, 与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.
