John: I heard you bought a seperation air conditioner. Is it true?
Peter: Yes.
John: What's the advantage of seperation one over the window air conditioner?
Peter: I think the seperation one has less noise because the compression machine is outside.


Is my usage of phrase "advantage of... over" correct? If not, could you suggestion one? Thank you.

    Did you write this yourself, by any chance? There's a repeated misspelling.

    But in answer to your question, yes, that construction is fine. It's perfectly normal to say that one thing has an advantage over something else.

    Thank you lingobingo. :thumbsup: Yes, "seperation" should be "separation". Thank you for pointing out my misspelling as well.

    I think you should check what type of air conditioner this is. Perhaps you mean "a split type air conditioner".
