It is not as cold in January as in December.

What kind of comparison it is? Is it an unbalanced structure or not?

  • So you're asking about terminology? – user3395 Aug 19 '17 at 10:17

If you're asking about the structure, it is grammatically correct, and can be considered parallel. The subject part it is is stated once for both January and December, while the preposition and month are stated twice, conserving the parallel structure.

  • The word "conserving the structuralism" isn't quite right. Did you mean "maintain the parallel structure"? – ColleenV Aug 19 '17 at 13:07
  • My bad, yes, I didn't want to be repetitive, but it ended up being ambiguous. – Confused Soul Aug 19 '17 at 13:20
