(1) What would you want more that you already have enough?

Can the sentence be used meaning "What would you want more when you already have enough?", also meaning "You have nothing more to want because you already have enough"

I understand that normally, for example, in the sentence "What is it that you want?", "that" refers to "what".

The question is, can the "that" be used an other way as put above as (1).

Hi,

1) What would you want more of that you already have enough of?

Can the sentence be used meaning "What would you want more when you already have enough?", This sentence is not correct. Perhaps you mean "Why would you want more when you already have enough?" The 'when' is changing the meaning here.

also meaning "You have nothing more to want because you already have enough" This reflects the general idea.

I understand that normally, for example, in the sentence "What is it that you want?", "that" refers to "what". I'd prefer to say 'that' refers to 'what'. You might even say 'that' refers to 'i'.

The question is, can the "that" be used an other way as put above as (1). #1 is OK, if that's what you are asking.

Best wishes, Clive
