Redundancy statement number 1:
“With loads of additional extras”
This one comes courtesy of an advert on Spotify Free, about a dvd release - I cannot remember which dvd. Edit: It was for ‘Angry Boys’.
Good god, seriously? It should go without saying that ‘extras’ already implies that it is ‘additional’ information, so why has the latter word been included? If anybody can come up with a good answer for this, please let me know.
So here are some examples of what could have been said, instead of the redundant statement above. :)
“With loads of additional footage.”
“With loads of extras.”
“With loads of extra features.”
“With loads of additional features/featurettes.”
We often come across these redundant statements in life, so I’ll be posting more soon!
