    He is who went to school with my mum.

    Hi! Here's my question:
    Is the following sentence correct?

    "He is who went to school with my mum."

    I know that "He is the man who went to school with my mum" is alright but I was wondering if "the man" can be omitted.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Re: Relative clause

    No - 'the man' can't be omitted.
