Ok, its not so much an expression, but if there is one word i have heard waaaaay too much this year is 'legacy'. Ever since the Olympics it seems everything has to have a legacy now. At least we arent hearing lactic acid mentioned every two minutes, mind you... Tongue

Another over used word by politicians / journalists is "transparent".

Are you saying that it is more better to say something only once? Grin

Indeed. You have got it in one. Hit the nail on the head. Understood perfectly, in fact. Grin

LOL probably incorrectly but it annoys me when I see some pretentious nana using them and saying them REALLY incorrectly. I tend to stick to things I can pronounce Smile

When I was taught public speaking in the good old days when state schools were concerned with education rather than box-ticking, the advice was:-

Tell them what you're going to say, then tell them, and finally tell them what you've just said.


Under Islamic law, a husband has to say, "I divorce you" thrice for it to have legal effect.

Yes, me too. I gave a lecture on photography some time ago at Nottingham University and decided to read up on how to do it. Advice, exactly the same as at school.

I do some review videos on Youtube too and I use exactly the same technique. And if you watch the historians on The Vikings on TV, say, same technique again.

It's also the classic way in which news bulletins are delivered:-

Tell them what you're going to tell them - The headlines
Tell them - The news in detail
Tell them what you told them - A summary of the main news

The same approach also works really well when compiling a piece of written work.
