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.
