    Arrow USING A WORD TWICE IS A SENTENCE

    I would like to know if repeating one word either consecutively or otherwise is permitted in written english.

    For Example:This is for the one year plan for the students.

    I have always thought that that is permitted, but that it can be a bad idea when using them consecutively, as it can be confusing that people see the same word more than once.

    I don't think I could get more repetition into that sentence if I tried!

    Basically: variety is the spice of life. Naturally certain basic words (and, that, it, he, for, in) will need to be repeated in sentences, but it's probably better style to vary anything else you can!
