Sentences with "who"
Hi, everyone. I wonder about translating "who". I'll post a few attempts and hope someone corrects me.
"He is the man who stole my book"
"I hate people who spit into other people's coffee"
"He is the man who examined me"
Is it natural to use bǎ? Of course I could say "he examined me", but that doesn't convey the same context as the 3rd sentence. That's why we sometimes say "He is the one who..."
Thank you for your time!

I'm no expert, but the use of 把 here seems odd. Why not:
It number 3, by 'examine' I assume you mean 'to give a written examination to', and not what a doctor does.
Hmm,... no idea why I formulated it like that. I guess my last text contained many 把 and gave me the feeling everything slightly more complex had to contain it. That's just my standard problem. As soon as I say something for which I don't have a VERY similar example, I put the words in a strange order :(
