What or what: how right?
In everyday communication, we often use the word"What". "What do you want?" "What did you come here?" But in books usually they write "what." "What are you doing?" "What do you need?" So "what" or "what" - how right? This we will discuss in this article.
"What" and "what"
In fact, both words have the right toexistence, but "what" is really a sign of speaking. And in a conversation this word is not always appropriate - if the friend can still say "What are you doing?", With less close and more formal communication, this form of the word is no good, it will be more correct to say "What are you doing?" Or "What are you doing? ? ». And in general, in most cases, "what" - a sign of not too high culture of the speaker (unless a person uses this word intentionally to joke).
However, in certain situations, "what" canit is quite correct to apply and in official conversation or the literature. It is about those cases where "what" is the word "what" in the genitive case. "What are you waiting for? "A miracle." "What do you require of me?" - Justice. " Usually "what" in the genitive case is used for intransitive verbs, which most often denote movement and position in space, physical and moral state.
