関係代名詞 Whose

日本語は大まかな状況を説明しているだけで詳細な訳ではありません。

先行詞が人で所有格を表す場合に使われますが人以外の場合でも使われたりします。

1. Restrictive examples: Relative pronoun combines two clauses and clearly identifies the noun/pronoun/noun phrase preceding the dependent clause. The dependent clause is needed to complete the meaning of the sentence.
制限用法:関係代名詞が2つの節をつなぎ従属節が先行詞をはっきりと限定する例。従属節は文の意味を完結させるのに必要である。

You spoke to his son yesterday.
This is the man whose son you spoke to yesterday.

2. Non-restrictive examples: Relative clause is set off by commas and supplies extra information.  The whose clause can be taken out without altering the meaning of the sentence.
非制限用法:関係節がコンマで区切られ情報が継ぎ足される例。Whoseで導かれる関係節が無くても文の本来の意味は変わらない。
