Ask About English!!! Q9: 'no point'

Dear AAE,

which one is correct?
1) "no point talking to you"
2) "no point in talking to you"

Brajesh


Dear Brajesh,

In English both of these sentences are correct; grammatically the 'in' is optional in this sentence.

However in formal writing (definitely BBC English), using 'in' is the better form to use.

Thanks for your question

Matt
