in thread My favorite superfluous repetitious redundant duplicative phrase is:
I guess i don't see it as redundant since the term reinforces the context. Similar to a complete answer which repeats part of the question.
For example: Did you go to the store today? Yes, i went to the store today.
Whereas everything past the word "yes" is redundant (save the period), it is considered proper English to complete the phrase.
If my supervisor were to ask me within the context os a "Moving Forward" session, "Which way are we moving?" The appropriate answer would be "We are moving forward" and not just "forward."
Though, it could be English is inherently redundant. :)
