Battologist (noun): One who needlessly and for no good reason repeats him or herself in writing or speech.

Yes, it sounds like some sort of an expert in the biology of winged mammals or someone with a deep understanding of military strategy, but it's not quite so flattering now that you know what it means.

"In writing, it is best to be succinct and not resort to lengthy and constant repetition in the style of some battologist."
