    either

    Is "either" used correctly in the sentence below?

    If one takes this view, it follows that rules of purely sporting interest do not, as a category, fall outside the scope of either the provisions on free movement or on competition.

    Thanks.

    Re: either

    Hi Jasmin165

    As a NES, but not a teacher, I believe "either" to be perfectly correct, but I would not have repeated the word "on".

    Hope this helps

    I think the "on" is fine.

    Re: either

    Hi Jasmin165

    I agree with bhaisahab.

    It's just my personal style - I tend to use as few words as possible to express my meaning - following the keep it short and simple (KISS).
    The second "on" isn't "incorrect" - I just regard it as redundant.

    If you were writing an English essay etc, different rules may apply.

    I would recommend that you follow bhaisahab's advice.

    Best regards to all
