Hello,

Which one of these two sentences would sound better and more correct grammatically? I remember I quite often happened to hear both, but I can't draw a clear demarcation line between them."That" sounds grammatically correct but in fact "where" is not uncommon to my ear either.

It's in Turkey where genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven.

It's in Turkey that genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven.

Thank you!

Hi,

It's in Turkey where genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven. Say it this way, without the 'in':

It's Turkey where genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven.

Or more naturally: Turkey is where genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven.

It's in Turkey that genuine natural dye carpets from different regions are woven. Fine.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you Clive.

By the way, how would you comment on this sentence taken from

www.telegraph.co.uk/.../arts/2005/05/ 17/ftusa17.xml&sSheet=/arts/2005/05/17/ixartright.html

"it's in the romantic arena where most problems are caused by Anglo-American misunderstanding"

Does the same rule apply here?

Thanks a bunch again.
Yes, it would. The 'in' shouldn't be there. Oh, and 'It's' should be capitalized.
Watchayakan Yes, it would. The 'in' shouldn't be there. Oh, and 'It's' should be capitalized.
Ok Watchayakan, now, what about this?
