Is the following sentence correct:

"I thank you for sharing with me your knowledge of and passion for X"?

If not, how should the sentence be phrased?


Those two prepositions and the syntactical construction they're involved in are all fine, although the elaborate construction is rather bureaucratic.

Note, however, that we thank a benefactor (you) for the benefit (sharing...).

  • So, the answer to the question is: the sentence is incorrect. It should start with "I thank you for sharing with me". – laugh Jan 19 '19 at 22:06
  • The omission of for was a typo. Too bureaucratic, i agree! Will find another way to phrase things! – Rastapopoulos Jan 19 '19 at 22:41
