It is such a terrible word that I cannot repeat.

I have been wondering about this sort of phrase for a while now. It seems to me there are 3 options:

1. "It is such a terrible word that I cannot repeat it."

2. "It is such a terrible word as I cannot repeat.

3. "It is such a terrible word that I cannot repeat.

I think only the first two work but I swear I have heard the third quite a few times as well.

Thanks!

    I agree with kentix. 3. would need a comma but probably more than that:

    It is such a terrible word, that I cannot repeat. :confused:
    It is such a terrible word, one that I cannot repeat. :tick:
