36 redundant phrases to eliminate from your writing

36 redundant phrases to eliminate from your writing | Highly Effective Teaching | Scoop.it

...One way I’ve found to help readers is to use concise language and eliminate redundancies. As Strunk and White advise, “Make every word tell.


Below is a list of phrases in which every word does not tell. These phrases are redundant, repetitive, wordy, and verbose. Paring phrases such as these is an easy way to tighten your writing. (Redundant words are italicized.) 

• added bonus
• advance planning
• armed gunman
• circulate around
• close proximity
• completely full 
• consensus of opinion ...
