in reply to poll ideas quest 2014

My favorite superfluous repetitious redundant duplicative phrase is:

  • From whence
  • Absolutely certain
  • Postpone until later
  • ATM machine
  • PIN number
  • Each and every
  • Reason why
  • Join together

Note: Many phrases that seem redundant are not always so, for example "most unique" which compares contrasts of unique items, or to be clear, for example, "later time" as opposed to "later date" which has a slightly different meaning. A phrase is truly redundant when one word, by defintion, includes the other, such as "ATM Machine" or "Each and Every" when in the same phrase.

    Is English the same as in Dutch? Is "Print out a document" used nowadays instead of "Print a document"

    Dutch knew thre: "Een document afdrukken", "Een document printen" (anglisism), or "Een document uitdraaien" (from those old boxes with forms that had holes for a tractor.

    I am utterly annoyed by the zillion of people the say "Een document uitprinten". YUCK!

      I think it is the same. But, i also think although in some sense redundant, the term is not truly redundant.

      A printer prints a person prints out, unless the person is a living printer and rolls the ink from his fingertips. :) Normally, the out is inferred, hence your irkage (?).

    Tundra is not necessarily frozen, so there is no redundancy there.
