about

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Linguistik, Note: 2,5, Universität Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The aim of this scientific paper is an exemplary but detailed analysis of English conversational tautologies. Based on relevant secondary literature I want to sum up theoretical investigations to present a systematic classification and categorization for a concrete analysis. This includes various ways of distinguishing between different types of tautological utterances. Next, I will examine a number of tautologies in view of their usage, effect and commonness by means of the search engine Google . I also want to add information on the issue, at which point common conventions of tautological usage become invalid.
