    Re: help

    I presume it refers to a pair of adjectives used in combination, probably connected with and. For example:

    Phoebe was confident and self-assured as she walked into the meeting.

    We have many of these that are fixed phrases. For example:

    Chicken soup is a tried and true method for treating a cold.
    I'm sick and tired of your lame excuses!
    Tony was black and blue after the fight at the playground.

    Hope this helps.
