These common words and expressions are used incorrectly by most of the population. Stop following the crowd and start getting a little smarter today!


ATM Machine - Do you realize that you are saying “machine” twice? That’s right – the M in ATM stands for machine. Cut it out.
Chai Tea - Chai means tea over most of the world. “Tea tea’? No.
Rice Pilaf - Pilaf means rice ball. So don’t bother asking for’ rice rice’ next time.
Ahi Tuna Fish - Ahi straight-up translates to tuna. Absolutely no point repeating yourself.
Sahara Desert - Same thing here: Sahara means desert. It is an epic desert, but you don’t have to force the point.
PIN Number - You got it: the N in PIN stands for number. So, “enter your Personal Identification Number number” seems a little unnecessary.
Panini Sandwich - A panini is a sandwich in Italy. So unless you want two of them, there’s nada reason for saying this.
Naan Bread - When you order or refer to naan, just say that. It’s a type of bread, so don’t embarrass yourself by asking for bread bread.
Veggie Soy - Yep, soy is vegetarian. Ain’t no such thing as soy meat. That’s the point. So don’t stumble on this one..
Shrimp Scampi - You got it: scampi means shrimp. Don’t bother wasting a word on this one.
Please RSVP - RSVP already has “please” in it. So what’s with asking “please reply please”? Sounds desperate.
3AM In The Morning - We all know that AM = morning. Save your breath a little.
LCD Display - “Liquid Crystal Display Display.” Forget it.
Queso Cheese - Queso is Spanish for cheese. Don’t be cheezy. Say it once.
False Pretenses - When someone is putting on “pretenses”, they are being false. Just call it as it is.
La Brea Tar Pits - The Spanish name for the tar is La Brea. That means when are referring to ‘em, you’re saying “The The Tar Tar Pits.” Not in my house.
Support Bra - Yep, a bra is for the support of your breasts. That is exactly why it is worn. Should go without saying.
Carne Asada Steak - In the Spanish language, carne asada IS grilled steak. So don’t state the obvious.
Los Angeles Angels - It doesn’t take a genius to work out that “Angeles” stands for angels in Spanish. Use your brain, save your time.

RAS syndrome (short for "redundant acronym syndrome syndrome") refers to the use of one or more of the words that make up an acronym or initialism in conjunction with the abbreviated form, thus in effect repeating one or more words. Two common examples are "PIN number" (the "N" in PIN stands for "number") and "ATM machine" (the "M" in ATM stands for "machine"). Other names for the phenomenon include PNS syndrome ("PIN number syndrome syndrome", which expands to "personal identification number number syndrome syndrome") or RAP phrases[1] ("redundant acronym phrase phrases").
