comment OK to use two “there”s in a sentence?
Thanks! I didn't know about avoiding the same word in different senses. Isn't that the whole idea of syllepsis to implicitly (without actually repeating it) use the same word in different senses?

comment Is the second “are” required in “Here are the ideas I thought are worth spreading”?

comment “Above”/“below” before/after a noun
Presumably "See the reference above/below." is short for "See the reference above/below this statement." i.e. using "above"/"below" as prepositions.
