Redundancies are words that repeat information unnecessarily. Since the conjunction so indicates result, the expression and so as a result is redundant. Use as a result or so by itself, or use the conjunctive adverb therefore.

  • Redundant: Lise and Mark stopped for dinner, and so as a result they got home late.
  • Recommended: Lise and Mark stopped for dinner; as a result, they got home late.
