Avoid these 15 Common redundancies in English

In English language, redundancy means superfluous repetition or overlapping, especially of words. At times, we tend to use two words that convey similar meaning within a context.  Though Redundancy is not considered an error, but a good practice to avoid repetitive expressions that adds nothing to what’s already been said. For example, “Foreign Imports”, here ‘Imports’ already conveys that it is sourced from another country, adding an extra ‘Foreign’ adds repetition.

There are many redundancies out there, we bring you here some of the popular ones.
