Consider the following sentences.

Al Pacino is a famous actor [who] played Michel Corleone in The Godfather movie.

Samsung is a very big company [which] produces home appliances.

Question: is it possible to remove subject relative pronouns (who/which)? If so, how?

  • You can use verb-ing (aka participles), e.g. a famous actor, ruling the ..., a very big company, producing .... – Damkerng T. Feb 22 '14 at 17:38
  • No. In Standard English you may not omit relative pronouns when the gap is in subject position. – snailplane Feb 23 '14 at 1:03
