Remove Redundancy

Streamline your written communication by removing 'double-teaming' terms and phrases. Here are a few examples.

  • a period of one week  (week is a single period in time)
  • end result (end is a result)
  • free gift (gifts are usually free)
  • personal opinion (opinions are personal)
  • oval in shape (oval is a shape)
  • large in size  (large is a size)
  • red in color (red is a color)

Simply stated, do not use several words when one will do.
