    Smile Please check the statement for redundancy

    Hi,

    Yesterday I stayed up late.

    Is this sentence appropriate?

    Stayed up in itself means being awake till late, thus is "late" redundant in this sentence?

    Thanks

    It's not redundant. Saying "stayed up" does not mean "went to bed late".

    Last night I only stayed up until nine because I had to be up four AM.
