    in your perspective point of view?

    in your perspective point of view?

    ------------------
    Do we say that to mean ' in your opinion'? Or simply is that said as a phrase like that? Thank you.

    Do you mean "in your perspective point of view" would all be together in one sentence? If so, no. Two problems:

    1) Putting them together is pointless, as they sort of mean the same thing (perspective = point of view in this context)

    2) It's "from your perspective" and "from your point of view".

    However, as far as meaning is concerned, yes, they both mean "in your opinion", or the way someone sees something given their personal circumstances and the information which they possess.

    Yes, it was said together in one sentence.

    I heard a Chinese famous TV host asking Hillary Clinton a question by saying 'In your perspective point of view, ..so and so.......' , and I strongly doubted its correctness.

    It's redundant, but sometimes when we are speaking we repeat or reformulate things to give us time to think ahead or to focus on something- did the person person a bit? If so, it could be that. Or maybe they've got the phrase wrong.
