And if you were REALLY a taskmaster, you'd also point out that the term "Hard taskmaster" is redundant.

Thank you for the explanation and examples, James!
It was exactly the explanation I was looking for, because danish is similar to english here, with the omission-part.

And the examples got me wiser, to understand the difference in spanish - super! Muschos gracias, James

Actually, that's not the reason here.

We can say both

Puedes tener cualquier casete que quieras

and

Puedes tener cualquier casete que quieres

The first stresses the "any" part. That is, any cassette, whichever one it may be. The second is just a statement that you can choose the one you want.

For example:

Vamos donde quieres.
We'll go where you want.
Vamos donde quieras.
We'll go wherever you want.

The "que" is required in the above sentence not because of subjunctive vs. indicative, but because it is a grammatical rule in Spanish that you can't omit the "that" as we do in English in such cases.

No, I don't think you can. We can omit the "that" in English (any maybe Danish), but not in Spanish.

Puedes tener cualquier casete que quieras.
You can take any tape you want

James - can you say: Puedes tener cualquier casete quieras - without the 'que' '

Nice one, however, she asked if it was right, not correct (wink). It's one o'clock in the morning here. I've been on for about six hours and I am just feeling a little tired.

Here's my offering
No admiten a cualquiera - They don't accept just anybody.

Cualquier persona puede ser candidato a la presidencia - any body can stand for president.

How so? Cherub asked if the sentence was correct, and I corrected it.

But if I were a hard taskmaster, I would point out that "your" should be "you're," and taskmaster is one word. [wink]

And remember that while cualquier is used before a noun, it takes the form of cualquiera (or plural cualesquiera) otherwise.

cualquiera que sea = whichever it is
