英语中介词提前到关系代词前的句子如何直观地按阅读顺序去理解?

Guilin is a beautiful city in which I grew up.

如上句,in提前到了which前面,那么在读句子时,in which就在感官上形成了一个整体,但是这样是不好理解的,只能看一下句子的后面再反过来看前面,但是读一个句子先读后面再反过来读前面是违反正常人的阅读习惯的,有方法直观地按阅读顺序去理解吗?

The sentence actually can be rewritten in two other forms:

1. Guilin is a beautiful city. I grew up in Guilin.

2. Guilin is a beautiful city. In Guilin I grew up.

The phrase “in which I grew up” in English is a Prepositional Phrase.

Structure of Prepositional Phrase is a preposition (“in”) followed by a noun, or noun phrase (“which I grew up”).

In function, Prepositional phrase is a qualifier which describes or gives more information (it is the city “which I grew up”) about the noun “Guilin”.

(Note: If you want to delve further into the function of “which”, here it is.

In English grammar, the word “which” here is a “relative pronoun”.

The function of the relative pronoun is to introduce a clause (in this case “I grew up”) which describes further (“the city in which I grew up”) the noun preceding it (in this case, the noun is “Guilin”).

I hope it answers your question.
