    Hello one and all

    Would you say "get 5% off all unreduced goods"? (The collocation "unreduced goods" does not have many hits on Google, so it got me wondering.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Don

    Again, we will need context to be able to answer this. Please could you give us the whole sentence, where you saw / heard it, etc?

    I'm sorry about the lack of context - again:) I'll try to improve...

    Well, in actual fact, there is not very much context to outline. The extract refers to an agreement where you can get a certain discount on goods which have not already been reduced.

    "5% off goods which have not already been reduced" (however, I would prefer a shorter/more elegant sentence). Would "5% off unreduced goods" convey the same meaning?
