parellel

posted by .

Lots of my friends think that Prince's music is old, but I think it's not only excellent but also an innovation.

  • parallel -

    The problem is in the second half of the sentence.

    In a "not only ... but also ... " construction, you need to make sure the wording that follows each part is the same as the other. In this case, this is what's there:

    not only excellent ("excellent" is an adjective)

    but also an innovation ("innovation is a noun)

    So ... revise so both are adjectives or both are nouns. How will you do that?
