用法
It is sometimes claimed that the expression old adage is redundant, inasmuch as a saying must have a certain tradition behind it to count as an adage in the first place. But the word adage is first recorded by the OED in the phrase old adage, showing that this redundancy itself is very old. Such idiomatic redundancy is paralleled by similar phrases such as young whelp.
有时人们认为old adage 这种表达方式很累赘, 因为谚语首先必须具有一定的传统才能成为adage 。 但是adage 这个词首次是以 old adage 这个词组形式收录于 《牛津英语词典》, 由此可表明这种累赘本身就很古老。这种谚语上的累赘与类似的词组对等,如年轻的幼犬
