Relative Pronoun Omission in Thai

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For decades, it has been debated whether Thai's relative clauses are relative or adnominal. However, in many circumstances, but not all, the relative pronoun appears to be redundant. In this article, whether or not the relative pronoun can be removed relies on the description of the relevant sentence in Thai.
