    Two adverbs weren't necessary.

    #GrammarNazismForever.
    To be adequate, and to be comprehensive, are obviously two different sentiments...

    So both were necessary as they are different adverbs If they indicated identical characteristics, then you'd be correct.

    They're mutually exclusive. 'Adequate' implies satisfactory or acceptable quality; comprehensive goes well beyond that. Ever wonder why comprehensive insurance is called comprehensive insurance?

    Keep trying, it's attractive. :sexface:

    They both were necessary as they offered separate descriptions. You typed a perfectly concise response miss/mr

    And somehow 'adequate' insurance doesn't have the same ring to it. ;D

    I think eloquence is one of the most overrated traits there is. Very few people whom I've considered eloquent have done so for reasons other than exploiting people's deference towards well-spoken people.

    How interesting you are > how many words you know (most of the time ).

    'As title enquires' - Is a reference to the question which the thread title poses to potential readers.

    Articulation has its innumerable merits, one must concede; however I must postulate that, on occasion, the tendency to plough the myriad depths of one's lexicon to acquire perfectly apt yet esoteric terminology is at best veritably dubious and at worst ignominious. To eschew contemporaneous styles of discourse in favour of implicitly self-aggrandizing extraneous jargon is indeed a poor route to the unmitigated comprehension of one's audience!

    that's what you meant, which I said I understood
    your thread title isn't posing a question to anybody who hasn't read it, so it's not really "potential" readers either
