Eight planets circle around/round the sun.
Can we use "circle" this way as an intransitive verb? Would it be better to leave out 'around/round'?
Thank you in advance.
Still sounds better than trying to make "ellipses" into a verb!
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
