于no matter ＋ 疑问词，意为“无论…”。如：
Whatever you do, you must do it well. 无论我们做什么，我们都要把它做好。
Whatever difficulties we meet, we can work them out. 无论遇到什么困难，我们都能解决它们。
Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you.无论你走到哪里，无论你做什么，我都会在这儿等你。
Be free to ask me whenever you have questions. 无论什么时候有问题，你都可以来问我。
He can go however he likes. 他爱怎么去就怎么去好了。
I’ll come however busy I am. 不论我有多忙，我都会来的。
注：当however表示 “无论多么”的时候，后面必须跟形容词或副词, 如上面的最后一个例句。
疑问代词（ what, who, whom, which ）与ever组成的合成词，还可引导名
词性从句（主语从句或宾语从句），相当于any person/ anything that, 意为“任何…的人或事”，具有双重语法功能，相当于定语从句中的先行词加关系词。如：
Do whatever ( anything that ) you like. 做你想做的任何事情。
I can do whatever work (any work that) I can find. 我可以做我能找到的任何工作。
Whoever (any person who) gets home first is to cook supper. 先到家的人做晚饭。
句中占据一定的成分（作主语或宾语）。并且这些词都相当于限制性定语从句中的先行词加关系词，所以句子中间不可能用逗号；而在状语从句中，这些词引导让步状语从句，相当于no matter + 疑问代词，在主句中不占据任何成分，主句是一个完整的句子，并且主从句之间要用逗号（有时省略，但完全可以加上）。试比较：
Whatever you do must be done well. （名词性从句）
Whatever you do, you must do it well. （让步状语从句）
Whoever breaks the law should be punished. （名词性从句）
Whoever breaks the law, he should be punished. （让步状语从句）
whoever 和whomever都相当于any person who, 它们之间的区别如同who
Whoever comes will be welcome. whoever既作主句的主语又作从句的主语。
Ask whomever you like. whomever既作主句的宾语又作从句的宾语。
Free theater tickets will be sent to whoever phones us first.
Give the book to whoever likes it.
4．whatever, who(m)ever 和whichever的用法比较
He may do whatever he likes.（要干什么就干什么，表示不限定的范围。）
All the magazines are here. You can borrow whichever you want. （指这里所有杂志中的随便哪一本，范围限定。）
