How can I not love a writer's resource that focuses on phrases--and weekly, at that? Out of Britain comes The Phrase Finder (aka A Phrase A Week), and make no bones about it, this site intends to enlighten you on the sayings, idioms and fabled phrases that are often handed down and quoted, but little understood. It updates and automates features I've traditionally loved in Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, which you can find here on Bartleby.com. Some 85,000 folks have signed up for email or other updates from The Phrase Finder, so join them--and use the site to find, or check up on, phrases you want to use in your writing each week.
