It means he presented an overview (without going into detail) of his agenda."The president outlined his agenda for the next term." Would you please explain [STRIKE]in words the part[/STRIKE] outlined his agenda?
See above.1. Is explain in words incorrect? "In words" is redundant. How else is a reply on this forum going to explain something?
2. Is "explain the part (use quotation marks around the entire quoted text including the italicized section) outline his agenda" incorrect or overwritten? "The part" is unnecessary but not incorrect.
I wouldn't say "overwritten" myself, but I suppose it could be used there. "Redundant" is clear: it means that the text repeats something which has already been said. "Overwritten" could mean many things related to using too many words.Does redundant mean overwritten above?
