Summary/Abstract: The article aims at a review of evaluations of redundant word connections declared in normative dictionaries and handbooks of Polish language culture of the last three decades. Apparently, the evaluations differ greatly, or even evolve, as one may say. Initially considered a stylistic phenomenon, pleonasms and tautologies become viewed as an inner linguistic phenomenon, e.g. close to lexical connectability, systemic, functionalized. These observations referring to the kernel of redundancy make the linguists evaluate it more liberally, noticing its linguistic functions as well.
