I know I should just let it go, but when I hear the newscaster speak of “the legacy (blank) left behind” (as if legacies are other than left behind), the traffic person say someone is “heading south-bound” (because if he just said “heading south” or “southbound” we wouldn’t get that progress in a certain a direction was being suggested), or the weather person state without a hint of embarrassment that the temperature is “now currently 65 degrees” I want to scream!
Then there’s the commercial for an asthma preparation that is “already pre-mixed.” I once had a teacher of pastel painting who constantly said “also too,” as if either “also” or '“too” alone would not convey that he was adding something.
What common redundancies irritate you? Or am I the only one neurotic enough to take any notice?
Don’t even get me started on, “really, really.”
