Wie wichtig ist das Wort "dass" in Deutsch?
In English, it's becoming a trend with some people to omit the word "that" from sentences as in replacing "It's fortunate that you are here," with "it's fortunate you are here." Basically it's just seen as more efficient.
Could the same be done in German? does "Es ist glück, du bist hier," work? Or does it have to be "Es ist glück, dass du bist hier."?
