Is "that" skipped after "so"? Like "it's to say something so (that) ..."
Yes, the word "that" seems to be implied in this sentence. It's fairly common in English to leave out words that aren't necessarily needed. Words are usually left out in the beginning of the sentence, but can be left out in the middle of the sentence as it was done in this video. Words that are commonly left out are helping verbs, personal pronouns, possessives and articles. Here are a few examples of words being left out of a sentence with an explanation of what words are left out. Ex: Couldn't do much. (This sentence has left out the subject "I" - I couldn't do much) Ex: Doing well? (This sentence leaves out "Are you" - Are you doing well?) Ex: No one home. (This sentence leaves out "is" - No one is home)
