    General question

    Is it grammatically incorrect to say "I'll send it to you within the next 24 hours of time"?

    Yes - it is redundant to say "of time" since hours indicate time.

    I'll send it to you within the next 24 hours.

    Thanks Anglika,

    I agree that it is redundant to say "of time" but does that constitute a grammatical error, or is it just something that one could do without saying.

    kkookk- I once saw a t-shirt that said:

    Reduce Redundancy
    Department

    I totally agree with Anglika.
