Usually always

  • Because usually and always have conflicting meanings, usually always is a self-contradictory phrase. People often use it where they mean simply usually or, in other words, most of the time. So in most cases, always is the unnecessary word and could be removed with no loss of meaning.

      This is just a bad habit, much like saying “your guys” instead of simply “your”.
      Example: I’ll come over to your guys’ house tonight.
      I do kind of wish we had a plural “you” in English.
