: : : Is the phrase "singularly unique" acceptable or is it a tautology? If it is acceptable, why is it acceptable?
: : Not acceptable! Not acceptable! Arrrgh!
: "Unique" is an absolute. Either something is unique or it's not. There aren't degrees of uniqueness.
Definitely not acceptable, almost as bad as my "increasingly more" comment in a previous discussion! However I have heard it said before, but that doesn't make it ok.
