The other day I walked past a construction site where a pair of posh buildings is going up. The sign on the chain link fence said, “Luxury Residences From $2M – $5M.”
The multi-million-dollar price tag didn’t give me pause (only because I’m not buying) but the word from did. It’s redundant with the dash.
When you use the en dash (the small one that goes between numbers—whether they’re dollars, times of day or something else) don’t put from before the first number. The dash in between indicates from and to.
The dash says it all—from two million to five million dollars—but unfortunately it can’t buy you a thing.
