BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

This project is an attempt to study some of the semantic redundancies found in students' speech. This is with a view to identify some long observed peculiarities in the use of redundancy in the students' use of English. In the context of language studies, semantics occupies the end continuum. Semantics is at the top level because it deals with communication and interpretation. The major problem is with the definition of the subject simply as the study of meaning. Meaning is the target/goal in language. In whatever we do, we try to get meaning. The challenge is trying to find the meaning of meaning itself Ogden and Richard (1923) said the major problem in semantics is trying to control "what is meaning". This project work is concerned with the repetitions made by students while speaking.
