請教兩個英文句子

1. Mr.White gave me what little money he had then.

what little money he had then 是一個名詞子句嗎?

這裏的little要怎麼解釋?

2. Because my stand is what it is, I have to oppose this idea.

what it is 的中文要怎麼解釋?

    1. Mr.White gave me what little money he had then.

    what little money he had then 是一個名詞子句嗎?

    這裏的little要怎麼解釋?

    little是「少許」之意.

    句中的what不是內含先行辭的關代, 而是形容詞:

    what little money

    = any little money

    = the only little money

    = whatever little money

    也就是說, what little money he had整個是一個名詞片語而非名詞子句, 由「先行詞+關係子句」所構成, 其中money是先行詞, what little是兩個修飾它的形容詞, (that) he had是關係子句.

    翻譯: 懷特先生給了我他當時身上所有的少許金錢.

    2. Because my stand is what it is, I have to oppose this idea.

    what it is 的中文要怎麼解釋?

    what it is : 這麼一回事 (the thing that it is)

    翻譯: 因為我的立場就是這麼一回事了, 所以我只能反對這個想法.

    it就是my stand.

    同一物件於句中再度出現的話, 以it代之.
