Code: Select all
"... and despite all the kids out there, there still weren't enough to convince the ice cream man to stop."
Recently I have been getting really bothered when I have two 'there's together as I wonder if it's even proper. How can you avoid doing something like the example above if 'there' ( let's say the playground for example) has already been defined without replacing the first 'there'? Secondly, is it ever proper grammar to have one word twice in a row?
