Ad nauseam

“Ad nauseam” is a Latin phrase that means “to the point of nausea” in English. It is used to describe something that has been repeated or discussed excessively to the extent that it becomes tiresome, irritating, or annoying. When an argument or point is made “ad nauseam,” it indicates that it has been restated so often that it has become boring or unpleasant.

For instance, if someone continues to make the same argument repeatedly without adding any new information or perspectives, you might say they are repeating it “ad nauseam.” This term is often used to express frustration with the repetitive nature of a discussion or debate.
