Student or Learner
In the following sentence Can I omit the word where? I am studying re
I come from a city where you can go dancing all night long.
Not a teacher
We can omit these pronouns: who, whom, which, that in defining relative clauses (no comma)
- If it is followed by a clause
- Unless it is before a verb or after a preposition
1. The man whom you met yesterday is my uncle. => we can omit "whom" because this is a defining relative clause and it is followed by a clause.
2. The doctor who treated me told me not to worry. => we can not omit "who" because it is followed by a verb.
3. Miss White, whom I invited to my party, didn't come. => we can not omit "whom" because this is a non-defining relative clause (it has a comma).
4. The people with whom I went on holiday were very kind. => we can not omit "whom" because it is after a preposition.
In your case, I think "where" can not be omitted.
Hope this help :)
