- For Teachers
I see. Thank you.
So... (I hope this is going to be my last question about this topic.)
Regarding the example in my first post (2. That you have obtained consent from ...),if I ask is it okay to start this "phrase" (not "sentence") with "that", is the answer Yes (when not taking into account the issue of parallelism)?
If not (and the example in my second post, (a) That the trial involves research is okay,could anyone please tell me the reason or the difference between the two examples?

A noun phrase, either acting as the subject in a full sentence or as one noun phrase among many in a list, can start with "That."
Does that answer both questions?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
