    omission of words

    Hi everybody,

    is it possible to leave out the subject and the "to" in sentences?

    "They are not paid as well as others and (they) cannot go to school."

    "It is not correct to buy such trousers from this company and (to) support them."


    Thanks in advance.

    Re: omission of words

    Hi Sunshine

    Ex: They are not paid as well as others and so (they) cannot go to school.

    Ex: It is possible not to buy such trousers from this company and still (be able to) support them?
