Parallelism

Parallelism artinya kata yang digunakan dalam 1 rangkaian harus memiliki bentuk grammar yang sama. Ketika kita menggunakan kata-kata atau frasa dengan anak kalimat yang disusun secara seri, maka susunannya secara grammar harus sama.

Contoh:

  • Terry likes swimming and to dive. (salah)
  • Terry likes swimming and diving. (benar)
  • Terry likes to swim and (to) dive. (benar)
  • I’m taking history, math, and chemical. (salah)
  • I’m taking history, math, and chemistry. (benar)

Kadang-kadang kata-kata yang diulang, seperti auxiliary verbs, bisa dihilangkan dalam susunan paralel.

  • I have been to Paris and saw the Eiffel Tower. (salah)
  • I have been to Paris and have seen the Eiffel Tower. (boleh)
  • I have been to Paris and seen the Eiffel Tower. (lebih bagus)
  • Is she coming to the party or go to a movie? (salah)
  • Is she coming to the party or going to a movie? (benar)
