Let’s Eliminate Redundant Words & Phrases!

English is a complicated language. Yet, we continue to make it more difficult by adding extra words to simple phrases. They become common practice, when in fact, they are just extra and unnecessary. Here are some great examples from Readers Digest where we should stop being so extra! Remember, less is more!


Forever and Ever
Did you ever describe someone as droning on and on (and on!) forever and ever? No need to add “and ever” to descriptions of forever. Daily Writing Tips recommends you avoid using the phrase, because forever is, by definition, endless.


New Innovations
According to Oxford Dictionaries, “new” already exists within the definition of innovation—which is a new method, idea, or product. So if you want to win the prize for redundancy, go ahead and describe something as a “fresh new idea innovation product method.”


Blatantly Obvious
According to Grammarist, redundancies are “word overflows.” Blatant and obvious mean the same thing. There’s no need to descriptively modify one term with the other—unless you want a deluge of word overflow, then by all means, go for it!


Please RSVP
You know you should RSVP for parties, but what do the letters stand for? Respond So Verification Promulgates? Actually, it’s a French phrase, excusez-moi. RSVP refers to “Répondez s’il vous plaît,” which translates to “respond if you please.” Adding the “please” is redundant.


Unexpected Surprise
Surprise! All surprises are naturally unexpected. This phrase is redundant, and you’ll often find it used in cases that weren’t, in fact, surprising. Ever hear anyone claim, “What an unexpected surprise!” after they’ve opened your gift? Or when you show up uninvited at dinnertime?


Advance Warning
It’s not really a warning if it doesn’t occur before whatever it is you’re being warned about. The weather centres don’t give warnings about storms that have already moved on. All proper warnings happen in advance.


Sudden Impulse
Trying to have an impulse that’s not sudden. A true impulse can’t be pre-planned. You just have to let it happen—involuntarily according to the dictionary definition. All impulses will be of the sudden sort. Avoid redundancy when describing them.


End Result
Technically, the result (for whatever) will occur at the end (of whatever). The result is the conclusion, the outcome, the final product, the finish. In other words, the result is the end. Feel free to use “result” or “end,” but never both. End redundant results!


Completely Annihilate
When you annihilate something, you cancel it out and make it void. You basically reduce it to nonexistence. You can’t annihilate something more. There’s no need to add “completely.” Richard Norquist at ThoughtCo lists other redundant words that get linked with “completely” like destroyed, filled, and engulfed.

Do you find yourself using more when less would suffice?


Definition of redundant: not or no longer needed or useful; superfluous.

In today's fast-paced world, unnecessary words are cumbersome. A friend and fellow blogger, who I consider a great writer, lives by the credo, "less is more". No doubt many of the phrases listed above will be familiar.

Does “it is what it is” apply? So overdone.

I like to read what I write - out loud and that helps me a lot. I also use a personal editing service called "The Lynnster", for my more complex creations.
I've heard that phrase :Less is more', many times. In fact it's my motto. Do you know who first coined those words?

- An adjective on top of the adjective and/verb is like putting more than one exclamation mark to a sentence; unless one’s advertising in the 1900’s, we’re reading George Orwell’s 1984 on double speak, or you’re a student trying to up the word count such situations aren’t necessary.

Oh, that sounds like an interesting service. Just how 'personal' is it? Is there a cost attached too?
"Less is more" is a phrase from the Robert Browning poem "Andrea del Sarto", also called "The Faultless Painter", published in 1855.

It is easy to let them slip into our daily vernacular. Another overused word that drives me crazy is 'like'. Thanks for stopping by.

Look around. Of course we are alone. But, come closer so I can hear you more clearly. Lynn sounds multi-talented, adventurous and fun. Think she and FrankeeZee would get along?
