    Next

    Please would you correct the mistakes in my sentences. This is not a school work. I just wanted to see if I can use the word "next" correctly in these sentences.

    1. He had a string of beautiful girlfriends, one more beautiful than the next.
    2. John had suffered many illnesses in his childhood, one worse than the next.
    3. He walked the street looking at the houses, one more expensive than the next.

    Re: Next

    I am not a teacher.

    Your use of "next" is fine.

    I would prefer "each" or "each one" rather than just "one", but otherwise they are good sentences.

    Re: Next

    Unless the girls are getting progressively uglier, each one is more beautiful than the last.

    Re: Next

    All those sentences would be more natural with '...each one more beautiful/worse/more expensive than the last'.
