I'm correcting someone's article and this one expression really annoys me.
Can 'and other similar' be used with people? as in
Web developers, marketers and other similar specialists.
I don't know why but it sounds odd to me while in a sentence like 'and other similar items' the words 'other' and 'similar' seem to be fine...
Cambridge Dictionary says that
similar means looking or being almost, but not exactly, the same
but I can't find any example there in which 'similar' would sit right next to a noun like people etc.
Is it the word similar that is off? Thank you in advance.
