A recent contractor constantly used the word "tautology" in all of his

More than one person here asked me what it meant. :-)

tau*tol*o*gy n. pl. tau*tol*o*gies
1. a. Needless repetition of the same sense in different words;
b. An instance of such repetition.
2. Logic. An empty or vacuous statement composed of simpler statements
in a fashion that makes it logically true whether the simpler statements
are factually true or false; for example, the statement "Either it will
rain tomorrow or it will not rain tomorrow."
