Thread: expensive

  1. Unregistered


    Hi there,
    Let say I am in USA now. Are the following sentences correct?

    1. Travelling to Canada is less expensive than to China. OR
    It is less expensive to travel to Canada than to China.

    Question 2
    Should we hyphen 'proofreading' and 'ice cream'?

    Re: expensive

    1. The second sentence sounds OK to me. The first one I'd prefer with travelling before to China.

    2. Don't hyphen proofreading. Don't hyphen ice cream when used as a noun: We had some ice cream. Hyphen it when used as an adjective: an ice-cream cone.
