Daily Video Vocabulary Episode 91 : Cliché
Sometimes we do typical things or have certain stereo type ideas and they remain the same without any change.

The word cliché basically means an overused expression or an idea which has lost its originality and is no longer interesting or effective. Cliché is a French word and it used in English too.

When a person behaves in a predictable manner, it means his behavior is cliché.
Something that has become too common because it is overdone,  is cliché.
The word cliché is a noun and the word clichéd is an adjective as it describes something of being common or overused.

For example,  when your friend tells you that her mother is more of a friend rather than a mom, it sounds cliché. This is because you may have heard this several times before and it is very common now.

Example 01 : The macho cop of Hollywood movies has become a cliché.

Example 02 : The old cliché 'A woman's place is in the home'  is no longer the same, women today  multi task as they manage their professional work and home both.

Example 03 : Posting images with friends at the bar  and mirror images with tons of like and comments such as OMG and LOL are the some of the Facebook photo clichés.

Example 04 : Samantha has been a radio host for many years, she's so cliché in the way she airs her show, she hasn't even changed it a bit.

Example 05 : Peter asked William, " How do I propose marriage to Samantha? Going down on my knees with a ring is too cliché now, I want to do something different."

Example 06 : The nutritionist said, "You are what you eat, it sounds cliché but you will realize it soon."

Example 07 : When the actress was asked whether she was dating the charming actor, she gave the most cliché reply, "We are just friends."

Example 08 : When the creative team showed the manager their newly designed company logo, he said, " The use of an eagle in a logo is cliché, you need to rework on this."

Example 09 : Michelle told her colleague, " Richard's habit of coming late is quite cliché, there's no point in telling him anything as he's not going to change until he gets fired."
