    Dear All,

    please tell me whether a preposition belonging to two or more nouns should be doubled/tripled or not.
    "Literaure in words and pictures" OR "in words and in pictures"?

    Thanks for the answer.

    Re: prepositions

    Hi Nora,
    There is no need to repeat the same preposition.

    I think it sounds better without it.
    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.
