Suppose I have a collection of numbered items, say toll booths that are numbered from 1 to 10.
Consider three sentences:
Toll booth 4 is closed today.
Toll booth 1, toll booth 2, and toll booth 5 are all closed today.
Toll booths 1,2 and 5 are all closed today.
This is not a question of correctness. I believe all three sentences to be acceptable Standard English. My question is: does the third usage (in which I pluralized name of the items in the collection, and listed the relevant items by numeral) have a technical name, something that I can look up in stuffy grammar text?
By the way, this occurs all the time when referring to page numbers. We don't typically say "See page 1, page 2, and page 10 for more details." Does this form of abbreviation have a name?
