I am having trouble with the following:

Magic extract of the Nucleoid Membranes of Quasimop Eggs of ancient Dinosaurs.

The way I have learned english, of is correct in all cases above. If you can say The dinosaur's eggs and The membrane's extract the word of choice is of and not from. Eggs of Dinosaurs.

However I feel there are too many "of"-s in the Quote above. Eggs do come from Dinosaurs and the extract does come from Nucleoid Membranes, therefore would it be legal to rephrase it into:

Magic extract from the Nucleoid Membranes of Quasimop Eggs from ancient Dinosaurs.

?

It would sound and look a lot nicer.

  • Eggs of, not eggs from, definitely. – Kris Oct 3 '18 at 10:44

Extract from, not extract of; eggs of, not eggs from.

Magic extract from the Nucleoid Membranes of Quasimop Eggs of ancient Dinosaurs.

But why not:

Magic extract from the Nucleoid Membranes of ancient Dinosaurs' Quasimop Eggs.

?
