Chapter 15: Relative clauses

  15.5.3 como


The Spanish has still a possibility to refer to a context with como (how). The relative adverb has - unlike the interrogative pronoun cómo - no accent. In English these constructions are formed with the way.

Lo hizo como lo había aprendido.
= He did it the way he had learnt it.
Cada uno lo hace como puede.
= Everyone does it the way he can.
Cada uno habla como le da la gana.
= Everyone speaks the way he feels like.
Si cada uno habla como quiere, se corre el riesgo de romper esa unidad.
= If everyone speaks the way he like there is the risk that this unity is broken.
Cada uno vive como quiere.
= Everyone lives the way he (or she!) likes.
