Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 313. The title of today's lesson
is \"Don't say discuss about. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. Discuss
already means to talk about or write about. So it is redundant. Remember
redundant means repeating. It is redundant to repeat \"about' after discuss.
So if you say discuss about it's like saying talk about about or write about
about. Since discuss already means talk about or write about another about is
not necessary. It is redundant. It's considered to be improper. So you
shouldn't do it. Although this is one that possibly some natives could make
this mistake. But you shouldn't do it. It's not considered good English or
proper English. So let's go on. So let's look at the first example here. They
discussed about safety at the meeting. No. You should simply say they discussed
safety at the meeting. You know safety probably in a company or something like
that. Make sure everybody is safe working in the company. So all right number two. He
discussed about the problems of marriage in his book. No. Here or you would say the
author discussed the problems of marriage in his book or the author wrote
about the problems of marriage in his book. Yeah. So that's the way you would
use it. Okay. However to be a little more confusing
though unfortunately just like English is sometimes, you can actually use about
after the noun discussion. So let's look at this note here. You can use about
after the no discussion. So you could say they are having a discussion about
funding the wall. Yeah. So somebody could be having a discussion about something.
So about is okay if it follows the noun discussion , but it should not follow the
verb discuss. Okay. Anyway, I hope that's clear. I hope you got it. Thank you for
your time. Bye-bye.
