These are the Most Redundant Things that You Shouldn’t be Saying, But You Are

These are the Most Redundant Things that You Shouldn’t be Saying, But You Are

Haven’t you ever wondered why we keep on saying things that are redundant? Those stuff that you don’t really have to say anymore, but you still do. If you do not mind about these things, then these won’t bother you. But, if you are obsessive-compulsive and wants everything to be in their right place, then even unnecessary words will tick you off.

So, below are 19 things people typically say that are wholeheartedly, irrefutably, utterly redundant:

3AM in the morning

What is wrong: It is completely unnecessary to say “in the morning” because “AM” already signifies that it’s morning.

Ahi Tuna Fish

What is wrong: “Ahi” literally means “tuna” in Hawaii. The proper way to call this dish would simply be “Ahi”.

ATM Machine

What is wrong: In case you didn’t know, the “M” in ATM is an acronym for “machine. So, if you say “ATM machine,” you’d sound pretty awkward because that would turn out as “automated teller machine machine.”

Carne Asada Steak

What is wrong: “Carne asada” means “grilled steak or meat” in Spanish. Grilled steak steak anyone?

Chai Tea

What is wrong: Chai means “tea” in a number of languages around the world. No need to repeat what you’ve already said.




False Pretenses

What is wrong: The word “pretense” already means “false”, so there’s no need to be redundant.

La Brea Tar Pits

What is wrong: In case you didn’t know, “La Brea” means “the tar” in Spanish. You already know where this is going.

LCD Display

What is wrong: The “D” in “LCD” means “Display”. Wouldn’t it sound so much less cool if you say “Liquid Crystal Display display” when you call it “LCD display?”

Naan Bread

What the issue is: By now, it’s probably very clear where this is going, but let’s go ahead anyway. “Naan” is a kind of bread and by saying “naan bread,” you’re awkwardly saying “bread bread.”

Panini Sandwhich

What the issue is: “Panini” means sandwich or bread roll in Italian, so again, you’re being redundant if you call it “Panini sandwich.”




PIN Number

What is wrong: There’s no need to reiterate the fact by saying “Personal Identification Number number,” because the “N” in PIN already stands for “number.”

Please RSVP

What is wrong: When you’re writing or saying “Please RSVP,” you’re actually asking people to, “Please Reply please” because “RSVP” stands for “Respondez s’il vous plait” in French. If you translate it to English, it says “Reply please.”

Queso Cheese

What is wrong: Saying Queso cheese is totally redundant because in “Queso” in Spanish literally means “cheese.”

Rice Pilaf

What is wrong: “Ball of rice” is the meaning of the word “pilaf.” You wouldn’t to say “rice rice balls” right?

Sahara Desert

What is wrong: Saying “Desert Desert” is a little bit weird wouldn’t you agree? Just keep in mind that “Sahara” translates directly to desert in Arabic.




Shrimp Scampi

What is wrong: Did you know, that “scampi” means “shrimp” in Italian? Might want to keep that in mind when you say “shrimp scampi.”

Support Bra

What is wrong: Aside from “supporting” breasts, bras don’t have any other function. Saying “support bra” is totally unnecessary.

The Los Angeles Angels

What is wrong: You don’t need to say “The Angels angels,” because “Los Angeles” already means “the angels.”

Veggie Soy

What is wrong: Saying “Veggie Soy” is truly redundant because soy is already a part of the “Vegetarian-Friendly” group.
