I don't want to beat around the bush. I'm looking for a program that can identify cliches in writing. I understand overused phrases stick out like a sore thumb to most writers, but I'd still like an automated option. That way I don't have to search for them as if they were a needle in a haystack.
Has anyone heard of such a program? My spell-checker sometimes finds them, but you know what say "you can't always get what you want."
For example, the program would see the five cliches in this post easily. Maybe it would highlight them?
Thanks for your help. Don't want to be a stick in the mud.
