How do I handle prepositional verbs in an or proposition? Here is an example:
if a user needs to be added or removed ? the database
The question mark is there as a placeholder. Since you add to and you remove from, writing
if a user needs to be added or removed from the database seems a bit awkward, so does
if a user needs to be added to or removed from the database. I'm interested both in what is right in formal English and in a less formal setting - could
if a user needs to be added to/removed from the database work? Thanks!
