    Even teachers can be redundant!

    I only registered here because the website stated that registration was
    absolutely free....what other types of free are there?

    This falls into the category of almost exactly, slightly pregnant, and fairly infallible.

    Why do we still use redundant and meaningless words?

    Can I add very unique?
    Hey, you're right. Wow, I did not notice that! Your name suits you.

    Maybe an excuse can be taken from the purpose of those words? I've heard that it's perfectly OK to modify uncomparables in "Advertising English." :)

    Hi,
    It's added for emphasis - free is such a short word, with absolutely it looks much more impressive.
