wrong matt i presume, but chinese i believe finished
relative clauses with a relative. then again they go
before the relandum

let's try to remember some cantonese . . .

ko:u: maai ngo ko:u:ge che GO yan yiga hai ho:ng gong
s/he sell me his/her car (SUCH A) person now is-at
hong kong

this is probably a complete travesty, but should mean

the person who sold me his car is now in hong kong.
