A Few Good Words for Cliches.
Rank, Hugh
English Journal, v73 n5 p45-47 Sep 1984
Describes how many of the phrasings attacked by cliche-hunters as trite, worn-out, or unoriginal can be legitimately defended on other grounds, by the criteria of speed and clarity, familiarity, social bonding, and personal delight. (CRH)
