What is the capital of Tunisia?

Synonym of the word “tautologie”

A tautology is a proposition that is always true (self-evident if you will). The wiktionary example is nifty:

100% de nos clients achètent nos produits.

The word you’re looking for is maybe pléonasme: a redundant use of words. Typically:

Je l’ai vu de mes propres yeux.

Monte en haut.

If an already self-evident proposition is redundantly worded then maybe you could call it a tautologie pléonastique, but that’s two words, and in that case you’d better add a specific example in your question.

Redondance, répétition, pléonasme, truisme sont tous des synonymes de Tautologie.
J’aime beaucoup le mot truisme comme une alternative au mot tautologie.
Ma préférence allant au mot: “lapalissade”.
Lapalissade étant un synonyme de tautologie en énonçant une évidence connue de tous mais apportant une nuance cynique et ironique que n’a pas nécessairement la tautologie.
