    This is a thorough list and I love it—but not for the reasons of others. A good cliché now and then communicates efficiently and gives readers the sense that you're one of the boys. (Sorry.) So a smidgen now and then is de rigour in my book. (Sorry.) Warmly, Dr. Evan Mitchell Stark PhD (Not Dr. Evan Stark PhD).

    Wow, what a list. There were quite a few I never heard of before! Now that I know, I can avoid them. Thank you, ProWritingAid.
