If anyone said "various and various" to describe something you would even say it was stupid, but because you are using "various and another word which is defined as various" it is okay and your argument is other stupid people have used the phrase for years, get off my lawn, it's not my fault.


Oh just fuck off.

"Various and sundry" is a corruption or change over time from the phrase "All and sundry" which meant "everyone, individually and collectively". It dates back to Old English in origin, I think.

Some phrases persist because of the way they sound when being spoken, and I think that's why the altered and slightly less meaningful "various and sundry" has.

You forget to weigh in on whether or not it is a stupid phrase.

I have never heard that phrase before. I assume it is only used by idiots who say things like "various and sundry".
