WHICH * (relative) Who; whom; what (of those mentioned or implied). _He walked by a door with a sign, WHICH read: PRIVATE OFFICE.  Their first song, WHICH made the charts in 2004, is great.  We've met some problems, WHICH are very difficult to handle.  He had to leave, WHICH was very difficult.  We have to protect the environment in WHICH we live.  No art can be properly understood apart from the culture of WHICH it is a part._ * 1915, Mrs. Belloc Lowndes, _The Lodger_, chapter II: There was a neat hat-and-umbrella stand, and the stranger's weary feet fell soft on a good, serviceable dark-red drugget, WHICH matched in colour the flock-paper on the walls. USAGE NOTES * (_US usage_) Some authorities insist, prescriptively, that relative _WHICH_ should be used only in non-restrictive contexts. For restrictive contexts (e.g., _The song that made the charts in 2004 is better than the later ones_), they prefer _that_. Actual usage does not support this "rule". Fowler, who proposed the rule, himself acknowledged that it was "not the practice of most or of the best writers". Even E.B. White, a notorious "which-hunter", wrote this: "the premature expiration of a pig is, I soon discovered, a departure which the community marks solemnly on its calendar." In modern UK usage, _The song which made the charts in 2004 is better than the later ones_ is generally accepted without question. * When "which" (or the other relative pronouns "who" and "that") is used as the subject of a relative clause, the verb agrees with the antecedent of the pronoun. Thus "The thing which is...", "The things which are...", etc. QUOTATIONS * 1611 — King James Version of the Bible, _Luke 1:1_ Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things WHICH are most surely believed among us...
