#StopTheCliche – This word also needs to go


Do you think we are beginning to sound angry on the #StopTheCliche series? Well it is because there are so many words that just need to go.

Today we’ve found another word that is fast becoming a cliche, its ‘In fact’. In fact is used to affirm that something or an event actually happened. Most people use this word to prove a point or support their claims, which is good.

However you really need to stop using just this word. There are many fishes in the water!

Did you know that the following words mean the same thing as in fact?

As a matter of fact, de facto, genuinely, in reality, in truth, in point of fact, indeed, veritably.

Let us know if you get to use any of these words.
