Mrrzy BS: Language Pet Peeves (1633* d) RE: BS: Language Pet Peeves 15 Dec 20


Doug Chadwick, one of my pet peeves is using multiple-word phrases to explicate things we have words for. Even more so in headlines.

Another is redundancy.

That headline had all of those things wrong with it.

I didn't say it was unclear. Just full of my peeves.
