    Yell noisily or loudly: redundant?

    Hello,

    Is it redundant to say "yell noisily" or "yell loudly"?

    Thank you.

    Re: Yell noisily or loudly: redundant?

    IMO, it is (yell - definition of yell by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.). I will say, however, that it might be sometimes admissible for stylistic reasons.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    I agree, but redundancy as Charlie says is logically proscribed, but that doesn't stop people from being redundant when they feel like it.
