    no one is allowed on the boat vs. no one allowed on the boat ?

    Hi all,

    I don't know when to use 'is allowed' or 'allowed'. Any suggestions ? Thanks.

    No one allowed on the boat is elliptic to No one is allowed on the boat; they mean the same thing, of course.

    No one is allowed on the boat is a full, proper sentence. The other isn't.
