Fully overused

It struck me that the word “fully” has become overused to the extent that it’s often meaningless.  Some examples:

  • Fully comprehensive (isn’t that just ‘comprehensive’ then?)
  • Fully air conditioned (really?  by what measure do we judge the fullness of air conditioning?)

This post is now fully complete.  Or is it?

One thought on “Fully overused

  1. On a recent trip to OZ I was very surprised by the number of motorhomes that had air conditioning in the driving cab and not in the living/sleeping area. Could this be described as ‘fully air conditioned cab’ rather than ‘partial air conditioning’?
