    Default Re: Omission of relative adverbs.

    Re: Omission of relative adverbs.

    The following relative adverbs can be omitted?
    Then Are they correct grammatically?

    1. This is the park (where) I met her.
    2. The chair (where) she is sitting is very comfortable.

    I'd like to know general rules about omission of relative adverbs.

    Thanks.

    Why no "it" or "them" after "omit"?

    I used it in the sense of performing the act of omission.
