1. He is average height.
2. He is medium height.

Are both grammatical?

•English expression - Writeacher, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 3:21pm
He is of average height.

He is medium in height.


•English expression - John, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 3:30pm
Do you mean we cannot omit 'of'?


•English expression - Writeacher, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 3:42pm
The word "of" is usually used with "average" but not with "medium."

Weird, huh?
=============================
Thank you for your help.

1. He is of average height.
2. He is of medium height.
3. He is average weight.
4. He is medium weight.
5. He is average in height.
6. He is average in weight.
7. He is medium in height.
8. He is medium in weight.

(One more time, I'd like to summarize the expressions we can use. Would you check them, please?)
