    omit that

    Hi,

    Conjunctions

    -The problem is, that production in her department has dropped.
    -Remember, that we didn't have these problems before she started working here.

    It says that sometimes omitting the that creates a break in the flow of a sentence, a break that can be adequately bridged with the use of a comma.

    Is it a rule or can we put 'that' after those commas?

    Thanks.

    Re: omit that

    You can have either the comma, or 'that'; you can't have both.
