For those times when you can't figure out what to say, use a database and take someone else's words!
Why pay? Just use a Google search...
From the page: The Phrase Thesaurus is an online thesaurus, but it's different from the thesauri you might be used to using - it finds phrases rather than single words.
could be interesting, but not for the money
excellent tool for content sharing articles
Hey, look! For people who lack creativity and want the world to know it, while doing as little work as possible, here's a search engine that gives you all the hackneyed clich駸 you could possibly need, for mindless usage. Great for journalists, politicians, salesmen, advertising people, and... wow, this is horrible. Also, it's a pay service.
I guess this phrase thesaurus is for the privileged few who can afford to pay for it and other exclusive writing tools.
I'd pay to subscribe to this... but $55...a YEAR? Perhaps they should reconsider.
From the page: "It's an online thesaurus, but it's different from the thesauri you might be used to using, it finds phrases rather than single words.
Enter a word and it will generate a list of phrases and sayings related to that word - often including interesting selections that you may not have anticipated."
Nice idea, and if it were free it would be a nice addition to thesaurus.com (multiple thumbs-up!). There's little point to even bothering with the "free sample" because it only works with these words: fish, orange, animal, money, number, stupid, body, sea.
One of the best ways for me to tell whether a tool will be useful is to see if it can "keep up with" the kinds of queries I regularly make, which essentially translates to "can I stump it, and how easily?" Such a limited free sample makes me think (rightly or wrongly) that I could stump it pretty easily--otherwise why limit me so much? Products like Visual Thesaurus (http://www.visualthesaurus.com/) offer far more useful tryouts.
I like this, but I sure can not see paying for it.
Good idea, badly executed... A shame cause I could see my big fat 9's for essays!
try the sample search before you give it a thumb up.
A phrase thesaurus--potentially useful, but you have to pay for it! If it's a one-off, I guess you could use the "free sample."
Potentially very useful but I'm not gonna pay for it just now. Or probably anytime soon.
It would be great if they could create a "one off" usage for a small fee (say $2.00!)
