Cliché Scanner

Cliché Scanner

This utility was written after I'd been disappointed by the shortcomings of another online utility that purported to do something similar.

Paste the text to check for clichés into the box below and click the Start Check button. You can optionally have the program display what it thinks may be adverbs as well. There is a restriction of 100,000 characters in the entry box.



Include adverbs                     

This utility uses lists of around 5000 cliché phrases and 530 adverbs culled from several different sources. Note that the adverb checking doesn't take the usage context into consideration. For that, you will be better off using Grammarly or the Hemingway app.

Please contact me with any problems you encounter using this utility or if you think any cliché phrases or adverbs are missing.
