Posted on August 23, 2016 | in Member News | by

It's Been Said BeforeIt’s Been Said Before: A Guide to the Use and Abuse of Clichés, by Orin Hargraves will be released in paperback in September. In the book, Hargraves examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided — or why they still have life left in them. The book contains new statistics about the use of clichés in modern English, analyzes clichés in terms of their intended function and purpose, and takes examples of actual usage from the Oxford English Corpus.
