I would like to learn how can I join two different pharse with the word and in accorect way.

The new method shows how to estimate the given model and how to simulate from a given model

It is not sound good. So, I tried this:

The new method shows how to estimate and simulate from a given model

However, it is wrong, as I estimate the model not estimate from the model.

Any help, pelase?

  • @F Thomas It is not clear what the two intended meanings you want to join are. I suggest you revise your question into two sentences. Think carefully about whether each is using the best word choices. I have doubts that 'shows how to' is best for what you are trying to say. Also, think carefully about the best prepositions before 'a/the given model'. As a general practice, when you can't get a complex combination of ideas to sound right in one sentence, it may be worthwhile to try breaking them into separate ideas and to then restart the joining process from scratch. – Ross Murray Dec 12 '18 at 9:56
  • Yes. Amaizing advice. – F.Thomas Dec 12 '18 at 10:12
  • @F Thomas Have a look at the answer by Little Carol. If your input sentence really says what you mean, then her revised version says so in a way that sounds natural to native speakers. Note how she identified repeated words and found ways to avoid repeating them. That is a technique called "parallel structures". You would do well to look up references for what that is and how it works. – Ross Murray Dec 12 '18 at 11:21

The new method shows how to estimate the given model and how to simulate from a given model -F. Thomas

I have no source to support my answer, but this is how I would change it:

The new method shows how to estimate the given model and simulate from it.
