In a contract, what is meant by "each and every"? Isn't this the same as just "each"?


This is one of a number of redundant conjunctions commonly used in legal language – see Tiersma 1998 Legal Language, in this instance reflecting Anglo-Saxon poetic alliteration.

It means "each", which means "every".
