A set of words in common usage that includes a needless modifier. Not to be confused with an oxymoron (where two terms of the same phrase literally contradict each other) or euphamism (a phrase used to change the emotional charge of a a word or phrase).
Examples of actual redundancies:

- ATM machine ("Automatic teller machine machine"? Just say "ATM".)
- PIN number ("Personal identification number number"?)
- "Call now for your FREE GIFT!" (well of course it's free, otherwise it wouldn't be a gift!)
- end result
- bare naked
- past experience

1. A reference to a woman hot is both hot (attractive) and Asian.

2. Slang used on an east coast audio podcast show, The Jone Dome, to refer to an Asian woman who is attractive.

Derived on the basis that Asian women are generally attractive, so a hot Asian is a redundancy.

See also, half-a-redundancy which refers to a woman that is either hot or Asian, not both.
Ex.1: Lucy Liu is a total redundancy.

Ex.2: Let's go down to Chinatown and scope out some redundancies.

Ex3. Yeah, she's hot, but half-a-redundancy
