Grammar: I appreciate something
by R Miller
Is it awkward or incorrect to say "I appreciate it that you wrote"? I am concerned about the "it". Thanks, R
You are correct. Remove "it". It is incorrect. You are basically referring to the subject twice if you include it.
You can either say:
I appreciate it.
I appreciate you writing me.
In either case you are appreciating an action that someone did for you (writing you).
All the best,
