Repetitive Redundancies

I  hope and trust you realize and understand the subject line above is a kidding joke.  So many phrases we hear and read daily are redundant, but we rarely have the awareness to eliminate them; we have gotten used to them.  Are any of these your favorites?

 

The end result

 

A contributing factor

 

Face up to the problem

 

Suffocated to death

 

Modest about himself

 

Own her own home

 

Revert back

 

Shrug her shoulders, nod her head

 

New developments

 

Proceed onward

Future plans
