I have a simple question concerning grammatical phrasing, and if you could spare the time to reply to me please, that would be fantastic.
My question is;
What is the name for the grammatical term used in a sentence where the description of an object is given by simply it's name, or a repeat use of phrase, as opposed to an independent definition?
1. An orange is an orange
2. She was upset because she was upset
This phrasing I have found very common in print deliberately designed to elude the reader, so I would dearly love to know what the technical term is for this kind of poor grammar please?
