The most preferred

Governments in many countries rely on bailout as the most preferred policy in a situation perceived as crisis.

Indonesian flag Here an Indonesian writer feels a strong urge to write most as a translation of the Indonesian paling. However in English this is redundant as the ‘preferred’ choice is already the ‘most’ liked:

  • Governments in many countries rely on bailout as the preferred policy in a situation perceived as crisis.

Similarly, it would be redundant to write ‘more prefer’:

  • I more prefer wine.

In this case you need:

  • I prefer wine.

And that’s all for today!
