'pretty redundant' is hardly a term for a high-class paper


op, can you use proper terminology instead of generalities?


describe, don't generalize, takes away the whole point of your 'zippy' paper when you use such pedantic terms as 'pretty' for major adjectives....

Thanks for the stylistic advice, but it isn't an academic paper. I am not an academic and I like to employ colloquial language on occassion. I feel it lends a sense of "authenticity" and tends to subtly downplay the "big word geek" angle.

Also, "pretty" would not be a "pedantic" term. It is a colloquial term, and you are in fact suggesting that it be replaced with pedantic terms.

Not trying to be a prick, just saying... :)
