    and

    I met Robert yesterday, but I forgot to tell him that you wanted to see him.

    Can I ommit the second "I" and just say " I met Robert yesterday, but forgot to tell him that you wanted to see him"

    is there any difference in meaning if I ommit the second "I"
    thanks

    Re: and

    I'd omit the subject in the second clause, and with it the comma before "but", as well as "that". Like this,

    Ex: I met Robert yesterday but forgot to tell him you wanted to see him.

    Hope that helps. :D

    Re: and

    is there any situation that, although the two subjects are the same, you can't ommit the second subject?

    thanks

    Re: and

    Good question! Hmm. Well, I'm not sure. I've not worked out the permutations on that one ... yet.
