By my current understanding of the two words, the sentence:
The preciseness of this precision is very definite
is grammatically correct. Correct me if I'm wrong, and if so; what is the distinction between the two words?
OED definition of preciseness:
Exactness, accuracy; definiteness; minuteness.
OED definition of precision:
a. An instance of exactness or preciseness; a particular, nicety, minute detail, esp. of language.
b. The fact, condition, or quality of being precise; exactness, accuracy.
Also, what is the word for the situation in which this can occur? (I want to say it's the opposite of an oxymoron?)
