AVOIDING CLICH S IN SPEAKING AND WRITINGAeenb AN INTRODUCTION Amirtha
WHAT IS A CLICHE? Clich s are words and phrases that have been used so often that they're no longer very interesting or effective They may have started out as a colourful, inventive phrase, like as sick as a parrot, but they've been picked up and used so widely and indiscriminately that they've lost their impact and become stale clich s are part of our everyday speech-we often don't realize that we're using them. They also occur especially frequently in certain types of writing (such as journalism) or areas of activity (such as sport, business, or politics)
LIST OF CLICHES - at the end of the day -back on track the fact of the matter in this day and age when all's said and done in the final analysis think outside the box avoid someone or something like the plague in the current climate at this moment in time in any way, shape, or form fit for purpose
WHY SHOULD YOU NOT USE CLICH s? - Clich s can be a barrier to communication and clear expression. Clich s can often be reduced to just one or two words that convey your meaning in a clearer or more original way. - Clich s can sometimes be removed completely withoutthe meaning of a sentence being affected. You lose credibility. Your audience will not see you as an expert if you can't come up with a better description than a clich . They've heard them too many times already.
