As I was scanning the OALD's entry for 'come', I came across the following example sentence,
The CD comes complete with all the words of the songs.
My primary aim is to understand how to use the pattern 'comes complete', so I would be grateful if you would help me out by answering my questions.
1. If the complete is absent, would this sentence still make the same sense?
2. May I paraphrase that sentence with 'The full version of the CD comes with all the words of the song'.
Yes to both 1 and 2. The "complete with" is superfluous: what may be termed as "window dressing".... much employed by advertising copywriters.
When you are writing something, it's a very good habit to look at each phrase and think: "Does this add anything to the sense of what I am trying to express?" If not: delete it!
