A friend and I are having a polite disagreement about these 2 terms.

The phrase I've written is "electric and electronic repair". He says that it should be "electrical and electronic repair".

I say that the "ic" ending of the terms makes them parallel whereas the "al" on one destroys this parallelism.

What do y'all say?

If there's a better forum in which to ask such questions just say so...
