Ever and its compounds.
EVER and its compounds.
The different conjunctions WHOEVER, WHATEVER, WHICHEVER, WHENEVER, WHEREVER, HOWEVER, have no real equivalents in French.
The suffix EVER, which has an indefinite meaning, is added to the interrogative words who, which, what, when, where, how. They then have the meaning of « any person or anything » or « all ». The words which are created in such a way express an absence of restriction, a widening of perspective, of choice.
* WHOEVER= any person who ...
- Please, be careful, whoever you go to that place with.
* WHATEVER= any thing or amount, no matter what...
- He'll never forgive you, whatever you do, or say.
* WHICHEVER = one, or any definite set of alternatives.
- It'll be a present from me, whichever you choose.
