Hi,
Omissible / Omittable
Are these two words both acceptable to use in the sentence below?

* Is the 'that' in this sentence omissible / omittable?


Are these commonly used or should I simply ask "Can I omit the 'that' in this sentence?"?

The double? in the above sentence looks a little weird to me. Is it O.K. to write this way?

Thank you.

Both are acceptable (click here and bookmark the site for future reference).

Delete 'the' before 'that'. ('Can I omit "that" in this sentence?')

Delete the second '?'.

Write OK or okay.

You used the asterisk incorrectly.

See above. We don't put a space either side of a slash mark.
