感激涕零啊! 呵呵:)
This sentence: Athlets in high-impact sports such as running may also lose iron through a phenomenon where samll blood vessels in he feet leak blood.(from 新视野大学英语3, unit 2, section A, 第32句).
Here phenomenon is followed by 'where' instead of 'which' or 'that'. I can understand why according to intuition, but hope find more examples:)

Thanks again, Laohong:)

1 B0H 481 This development, as Professor George Jones has pointed out, contributed to the modern phenomenon where the Prime Minister is expected to be answerable for every aspect of government business virtually all the time.2 GU7 863 Just as Newton was not the first to notice that what goes up must come down, so there were many groups of phenomena where conservation had been recognized long before Helmholtz.3 HUK 375 Post-natal depression is a distressing phenomenon where women who have just given birth feel fed up, weepy, don't like the baby, don't want to be mothers, can't really take an interest in it.

Re: 回复: 如何在线使用语料库

a) phenomenon + where =/= b) phenomenon + which

The main difference is that the head noun "phenomenon" in "phenomenon + which " functions as the subject of the predicate in the relative clause, whereas the same cannot be said of the "phenomenon where" structure. That is, in the "phenomenon where" structure the head noun "phenomenon" merely introduces something to be elaborated on, and the subject of the relative clause can be something entirely different. The head noun in this case is a kind of nominal that is sometimes called 'signaling noun' (a la John Flowerdew, etc.).
