|Redundancy theory: comprises the thesis that nothing is added to a true sentence when it is said that it is true. In other words, each sentence asserts its own truth; the appending of the truth predicate "is true" would thus be redundant. See also judgment, truth theory, truth definition, deflationism, minimalism, disquotationalism, all that he said is true, predication.|

AustinVsRedundancy Theory: the statement that A refers to the world outside - i.e. something outside this statement itself - the statement that the statement is true refers to the world including the statement that A refers to the world. - That only makes sense if the statement has already been made and verified. - The relationship between the st.that A refers to the world and the world whose existence claimed by the statement that A refers to the world is true, is purely conventional. - A statement that says of itself that it is true is just as absurd as the one that says that it was wrong.
