One such instance involves the word consensus. Some writers like to write consensus of opinion, but this construction provides a redundancy that produces less effective technical writing. Of opinion is implied with the word consensus, which means general agreement. A group with consensus by definition shares the same general opinion, so writing of opinion produces a redundancy of meaning.
Consider the example sentence in the cropped graphic above. Removing the extra words of opinion makes a difference.
The consensus among more effective technical writers is to remove of opinion when using the word consensus. Removing extra words which do not contribute substantially to the essential meaning a sentence communicates yields more effective technical writing. And more effective technical writing will promote you and your brands more effectively to your audience.
