The sentence in question:
But with the US leading by example, the hope is that international efforts to tackle global warming will be revitalised.
I'm a non-native speaker. I understand that natives use "hope is" like this:
With hard studying, hope is I will pass the test.
Please break this down grammatically for me to understand.
In my understanding, the sentence is grammatically wrong because
it should look like "A is B".
"A is B will C" is not an acceptable form.
I couldn't find any grammar rule pertaining to "hope is~".
Is there a "that" (relative pronoun) dropped somewhere?
Or does the word "hope" have some hidden grammar skillset/quality that most non-natives don't know about?
I think I found the grammar error first, then BBC had since updated the post. (Proof : https://hellotalk.com/m/uPyWJUS3OMuFDD==?id=L0pvNuN=)
Anyway, so even after BBC's update everybody here is saying that "that" can be omitted so I'm researching the conditions for omission of relative pronoun that. BTW, if you guys could just name the concise and precise law of the grammar that allows for this, things would be simpler. I had ran into another grammar question before, and to understand this properly I had to be insistent in my pursuit. (https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/513066/havent-we-vs-dont-we)
Just saying, contextually understood grammar technically isn't grammar. Grammar is rules and structures, not a literature piece.
That can be omitted when
- it's pointing to an object (the girl (that) I love)
- that after some emotional conviction words (I am glad that you came.)
- after an attribution verb (Tom said that he didn't feel well.)
- phrasal expressions (You may play provided that you do your homework first.)
