For many years the idea as to if the Xenomorph employed an exoskeleton or endoskeleton plagued debates and discussions with unanswered questions; however, recent ideas based on Dr. Wren's studies suggest that the Xenomorph may employ an endo-exoskeleton: a skeletal structure that exists as both an epidermal structure and as a subdermal structure.

Why do we have to use "as both X and as Y" construction?
Alternatively, is it correct to say "as both X and Y" since we have no any idiom connected with "as"?

The only idiom here, to my mind, is "both X and Y" :roll:

Never should we use "as both X and as Y" construction.
The correct construction is BOTH AS X AND AS Y, which is employed in the correct version.

Additionally, we may use this construction in a number of ways.
I was accepted both by Stanford and by Harvard.
I plan to visit a bar both with my firends and with my parents.
My friend earns money both by buying and selling old cars and by trading in copper scrap.
