Here is a sentence: "Without those measurements, we cannot measure if we are progressing in the right direction."
measure is clearly a verb here, but what part of speech is measurement? (abstract noun?)
The use of measurement and measure in the same sentence does not seem like good style to me. Is this good style? I feel like the measure should be replaced with a synonym because measurement is in the same sentence. Is there a style rule or guideline that says this?
