Repeat and Return

Repeat and Return :

'Repeat' means 'to do/ say again'

'Return' means 'to come back'

What is the common mistake?

Most often we hear people saying: 'repeat again'.

The word 'repeat' means 'to say again'. There is no need to add the word 'again'.

This is what is called a 'redundancy', i.e. saying the same thing twice without effect.

The same rule applies to the word 'return'.

It is incorrect to say 'return back'.

These are only ten of the many common mistakes made while speaking English.

As you become aware of these and change to the correct forms, you may start noticing other errors that need attention.
