Just a pet peeve of mine- adding implied adjectives. Sometimes there are adjectives you just don’t need. ‘I saw a bony skeleton.’ ‘There’s a black and white panda under the bridge.’ ‘Have you climbed that woody tree?’
This isn’t a frequent problem in published literature, thank goodness, but it happens frequently in every day speech/writing. Recent example:
I am out of contact due to a serious death in the family.
My condolences. I had a minor case of death once, but I got over it. Incidentally, if you’re out of contact, how did you send this message? Hello? Nevermind.
