in in?!

Snout 2010-09-26 07:55 link permalink

I'm not sure, but I guess the first "in" is the particle of the verb to major in sthg, and the second one is the particle indicating the place, eg "college". Native explanation/re explanation welcome !

Using "in in" here is grammatically correct, and sounds natural in spoken language. Repeated words often look strange in writing, even if they represent valid grammar. For example: "I learned that she had had a baby."

As Snout said, the first "in" is associated with "major" (e.g. "I plan to major in linguistics.") and the second "in" is associated with "college".

An acceptable alternative to this would be "What do you plan to major in at college?"
