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.
