I am an English teacher in Korea. Please help me to teach correct English to my students.
I found the following sentence in the book "Why We Shop: Emotional Rewards and Retail Strategies" written by Jim Pooler. I don't think it is grammatically or logically correct.
At the office, it is important not only to look good and fit in; it's also unusual for men and women to outdress their coworkers.
I think it is violating parallelism, not only A but also and it should be rephrased to the following:
In the office, it is not only important to look good and fit in, but also unusual for men and women to outdress their co-workers.
Is the use of not only... but also correct in the second sentence compared with the first sentence?
