I'd like to know if the following sentence is correct:

I took care of where you will sleep.

On one hand, the part of where sounds strange to me, but on the other hand, I can't think of a grammar rule that would forbid that.

Is it correct to say that? Wht? Why not?


This is fine.

A relative clause which is not "bound" to a noun which it modifies (and which is therefore sometimes called a free relative clause) acts syntactically like a noun: it can be a subject or object of a verb, or the object of a preposition.

SUBJECT: Where you will sleep is on the couch.
OBJECT of VERB: I want to know where you will sleep.
OBJECT of PREPOSITION: I took care of where you will sleep.
