Summary/Abstract: This article studies, from a critical viewpoint, the semantic phenomenon of tautology, making use of high-frequency individual quote and empirical data. The aim of the analysis is to determine, in a qualitative way, how "efficient" for everyday discourse the tautologic structure is, taking into account the multiple uses of such patterns, as the basis for contextual functioning and as a device for articulating new meanings.
