Abstract: If H is a finitely generated subgroup of a free group G such that every conjugate of H contains a cyclically reduced word then . This generalizes a well-known result of Karrass and Solitar. If H is a finitely generated subgroup of the free product with amalgamation such that every conjugate of H meets A and B trivially and contains a cyclically reduced word then G has only finitely many (H, U)-double cosets. Both theorems are proved by defining an action of G on a tree such that H acts freely.
