I have a grammatical question . when can we omit THAT in our clauses? ( "that" as relative pronoun,)
e.g~ I heard (that) she is beautiful .
in which case (or cases) can we omit (that) ?
Thanks a million
That's not a relative pronoun.
The man that interviewed me was friendly.
The man (that) I spoke to was friendly.
In the first, we can't omit it, but we can in the second, because 'the man' is the subject in the first sentence of both verbs. (The man inteviewed me. the man was friendly) The second is different (I spoke to the man. the man was friendly)
