It happens a lot.
There is much unnecessary ‘exaggeration’ in both writing and spoken word.
Lots of unneeded words are used for emphasis.
When people do this, it makes me think their warlike nature is coming out, and they are ‘punching’ you with each extra word.
Read or listen carefully, and you will see what I mean.
That, and the inevitably split infinitive, should be avoided?
On a lighter note, I saw recently an advertisement for a ‘silent alarm clock’.
That really made me wonder.
