Do you suffer from the heartbreak of tautologies? This is both a humourous look at how people misuse the English language and a tutorial on how to avoid sounding like many politicians. We all use redundancies in our language but this wonderful book offers reminders about what we should be mindful of. I laughed my way through this gem and walked away richer for the experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ericalambbrown This sounds fantastic! 📚 1mo
Come-read-with-me A couple of examples: 1) Serious Crisis - not to be confused with all those whimsical crises 🤣 2) Unknown Stranger - a stranger without a name tag 🤣🤣 3) Hidden Pitfall - a pitfall unannounced by bells and whistles 🤣🤣🤣 1mo
