[英文筆記][區別/差異] no matter what vs whatever 什麼時候不能互換

By dewdewcheng

No matter後面可以接 :who, whose, what, which, where, when, how。

課本講義寫,No matter what = whatever; No matter when = whenever依此類推。他們是可以互換的。

但是,BUT,總有個但是的情況。

最大的差別是:

whatever後面的子句,可以當成主詞或是受詞

例句:I’ll believe whatever she says. ("whatever she says"是動詞believe的受詞)

但是,no matter what (etc)後面的子句,無法當成主格或是受格。

I won’t believe no matter what she says. (x)

I won’t believe her no matter what she says. (o)
