240 (or 130 for works and expressions named by title alone) should only be used when there is a single work or expression in the resource being described.  If there are two or more, use 7XX analytic entries instead (and precede them with $i Container of (expression)).

Do others agree with Mark?  A 240 is an expression as well as a 7XX, so why do can't we have a 240 and a 700 instead of two 7XXs?

In practical sense, for those ILSs based on the unit card, the 240 will display (without the coding) at the top of the record and will be recognizable to the patron.

Two 7XXs.  Each language expression is only one part of the whole resource.  Thus, AAPs for the parts are presented as a chain of analytical added entries.
