What’s a tautology?


In grammatical terms, a tautology is when you use different words to repeat the same idea (restating or recording). 

Examples:

The phrase, “It was Close to proximity" , is a tautology. 

The words close and proximity are two words that convey the same meaning.


The words should and in case are also two words with the same meaning. 

It is either you used"should", or "in case."

Examples: 

Should I come late, please take note of the people registering for the program. 

In case I come late, please take note of the people registering for the program. 

There are many tautology words that people use every day. 

It's time we learn the right way of communication in English writing and speaking. 

Tautology is unnecessary and doesn't make a sentence clear and straight to the point. 

I hope you have learnt something new?
