    'taken as assumed'

    Dear teachers,

    On the internet I've come across the expression 'taken as assumed', especially in more scientific texts.

    Is this expression synonymous with 'taken for granted' and/or is it bad English?

    Thanks for your help & advice,

    Joost

    Yes, it means the same as 'taken for granted'.

    In my view it's redundant: taken for true, given, or assumed all mean the same thing. You don't need to join two together.
