    there is are...who?

    Hello,

    Is it correct to say there's someone who is waiting for you ? The "who" is incorrect I suppose ? Is it better to say: there's someone waiting for you.

    Thank you. Jean-Luc

    .
    There's someone waiting for you is more natural-- the who is has been elided; but there is nothing wrong with the longer form.
