lequel, laquelle, lesquels, lesquelles - French relative pronouns

AUDIO below, with Anne's French accent

LEQUEL, LAQUELLE, LESQUELS and LESQUELLES are relative pronouns. Because they are ‘relative’, relative pronouns are here to “relate, put in relation” two sentences that would otherwise be separate. Because they are pronouns, they replace a noun.

LEQUEL replaces a masculine-singular noun
LAQUELLE replaces a feminine-singular noun
LESQUELS replaces a masculine-plural noun
LESQUELLES replaces a feminine-plural noun

Examples

Voici le hamac dans lequel je dors l’après-midi.

                        Here is the hammock in which I sleep in the afternoon.

Je vois les jouets pour lesquels tu as dépensé tant d’argent.

                        I see the toys for which you spent so much money.
