El "Que" Espanol (The "Que" in Spanish).
Hernandez Alonso, Cesar
Revista de Filologia Espanola, v50 n1-4 p257-271 1967
The word "que" is used in Spanish both as a relative pronoun and as a conjunction. As a relative pronoun it can be singular, plural, masculine, feminine, neuter, indefinite, or variable and can by its use in modifying persons and objects serve as a subject or a complement. The relative "que" can precede articles and prepositions. As a conjunction, "que" usually has a neuter antecedent and unlike the relative "que", the conjunction has no syntactic function. When used as an interrogative, "que" appears with a formal accent as "que". As a conjunction, "que" is used copulatively, distributively, adversatively, concessively, comparatively, and consecutively. (DS)
