I don't understand your point.In isolation, this seems an odd choice for me, but it might be a generational thing - I would prefer when over whenever in this sentence as a stand-alone sentence
My previous post was in response to AndygcI don't understand your point.
"I will try to see Vieky whenever I go to London." On every future occasion that I go to London I will try to see Vieky.
"I will try to see Vieky when I go to London." On a future occasion that I go to London I will try to see Vieky.
I don't think we can say one or other sentence is preferable unless we know the intended meaning.
I'm afraid I really don't understand you. I'm used to people saying "whatever" as a dismissive comment on its own, but I really cannot see how "I will try to see Vieky whenever I go to London" can possibly mean "it doesn't matter when I go to London".but it could also have the meaning "it doesn't matter when I go to London" as in whatever, whoever, etc
What restrictive sense?Personally, I tend to use "whenever" in this restrictive sense.
1 At whatever time; on whatever occasion (emphasizing a lack of restriction)
‘you can ask for help whenever you need it'1.1 Every time that.
‘the springs in the armchair creak whenever I change position’
My apologies re. "restrictive". Just saw it now - 'unrestrictive' sense is, of course, what I should have typed.on every occasion that I go there I will try to see Vieky. That's what "whenever" means.
Not sure why you began your post with 'I don't have a problem
There are several ways to look at this problem.
