I learned the following sentence.

你是从哪里听到这个消息的?

Is it possible to omit 的 here? So is 你是从哪里听到这个消息? wrong?

I know that the particle is used to signal ownership, but is it necessary to use it here?

Information seems to be a noun already?

  • verb ... 的 = what/that/which/where ... verb. 你是从哪里听到这个消息的 = which man you heard the message from? Commented Aug 18, 2017 at 10:04
