List of losers
If you are a person who enjoyed English class in school, or if you want to speak and write better English, take a look at Laura Hayden's list of clichés.
Often we speak and write with clichés because we are lazy. Rather than thinking of original ways to express our ideas, we repeat the familiar, overused phrases that come to mind so easily. Clichés make our writing and speaking dull -- and may suggest that we don't think much.
It takes vigilance to avoid them, but I'm inspired to try harder after browsing Hayden's list.
Cliché can be spelled with or without the accent. I like the look of cliché better, so that's how I've typed it.
