Is there a word that describes the case of using an adjective to describe a noun that already suggests as much?
- the pretty model won all of the awards
- the smart genius answered every question
- the dangerous monster ate the man
- the fast jet
- the floating buoy
Some of these examples might not be the best, but I hope they give the right idea. I know they are superfluous, but I'm not trying to define the adjectives themselves, but the act of using them.
