Interested in Language
Hi everyone, my first post.
I've been bothered by this for days. Is the word 'keen' for keen interest redundant like 'free' for 'free gift'?
Shouldn't it be accurate if I were to use 'strong'instead of 'keen' to indicate the level of interest?
Thank you in advance for your valuable input!
You can show all sorts of levels of interest in something. Here are some examples:
He showed a slight interest in the food.
They showed some interest in the film.
She showed a keen interest in tennis.
