Battology

That was the word of the day.

battology: wearisome repetition of words in speaking or writing.

That's how the classroom turns out to be. That's how the meetings also turn out to be. That's what advertising also turns out to be. That's what regretting also turns out to be.

Interestingly, that's what determination could also turn out to be.

Perhaps, the challenge for all of us is to repeat but not turn the repetition into battology.
