Pronunciation

Usage notes

There is often some confusion between the usage of duquel and the usage of dont. Both can be translated as of which, of whom, from which, from whom. As a rule of thumb, if a prepositional phrase ends with de (e.g. à coté de, près de, en faveur de) then duquel should be used. If not, use dont.
