Shop Around for Freshness.
Evans, George P.
Student Press Review, v73 n4 p13-15 Feb 1998
Argues that cliches make writing stale and flat, and that getting rid of them is a necessity. Lists the "top 14" cliches gathered by a Columbia Scholastic Press Association judge. Uses examples to show how cleansing a passage of its superlatives and cliches improves the writing, adding clarity, fairness, and objectivity as well as freshness and flavor. (SR)
