Hello, Trader, I am writing an article on tautology for a philosophical psychology journal. I am looking to cite an authoritative definition of "rhetorical tautholgy." Your tautology wikia seems to be anonymous. Can you tell me where I can find a good source? Is Fowler's definition of tautology a good definition of a rhetorical tautology? Wiki's, since people can contribute false info or delete good info, may not be acceptable as good references among academic publications.Thanks. Dave. ...

P.S. My paraphrase of your wikimedia rhetorical tautology explanation reads like this: rhetorical tautology is differentiated in Wikipedia as an argument that is necessarily true, redundant, useless, “unnecessary,” uninformative, unfalsifiable, that uses different words to "say the same thing,” and “masquerades as an explanation (Tautology, rhetoric).

Are there other sources I can cite that contain the same list of tautology descriptors as your wikimedia wiki? (Wikimedia itself advises its readers to use encyclopedic sources to help you find original sources.)

Have you published this tautology information in a journal or a book? If not, do you want me to cite you anyway? If so, how can I cite you in addition to other sources?
