Sites to Help with Wordsmithing
September 1, 2011 6:39 AM Subscribe
I like ClicheFinder and use it often to help me brainstorm clever titles for events and programs. What are some other sites that aggregate common word associations and turns of phrase? Or more general creative wordplay?

In my job I have to do a lot of naming and titling of events on the program calendar, written blurbs, etc. Often I'll start with ClicheFinder and enter a word associated with the topic, to find out what common phrases might have some resonance that I can tweak and play on to create a catchy name.
But I've never really found other sites that do something similar in collecting and presenting common word associations, familiar phrases, etc. Are there other word and phrase sites might help me in titling? Puns and homonyms? Lists of famous titles of books and movies sortable by words in the titles? I welcome all recommendations! Thanks!
