Mensagem:  Redundancy is not that bad in informal spoken language. According to the theory of information some degree of redundancy is good for the listener to take in the information (in case something has been lost in the process.)

In Portuguese we convey highly redundant information at a grammatical level:

As meninas são muito bonitas.
