How to correct faulty parallelism.
How can I correct this sentence so it does not contain faulty parallelism. This is the following sentence from my paper: Referring to empirical evidences gathered, the researchers argue that Aripiprazole is safe and well tolerated in children and youngsters.
I don't see any issue with parallelism in your sentence. I think the software got confused.
A couple of things, I'd change, though:
- Change "evidences" to "evidence" (even a whole lot of evidence is still singular).
- Kill the word "gathered" -- it makes your opening phrase a little awkward, and the sentence means the same thing without it.
- "Children" and "youngsters" are synonyms. Take one out, and the meaning stays the same.
