Increasingly since the advent of the internet and of social media, one hears phrases like “big tech giants”––a “giant” is by definition “big”––spewing forth from native speakers of contemporary American English, witness the mindless divagations including this pleonasm of a miscellaneous voice on today’s broadcast on NPR of the program “Here and Now.” Redundancies of this sort are too numerous to catalogue. Suffice it to say [NB: “suffice it to say” and not the ubiquitous mistake “suffice to say”], mindlessness is now the quotidian currency of the blather that has come to infect social media. No amount of so-called education in what currently passes for American colleges and universities can stanch the flow of this galimatias.
