    Please advise a good reference or site to find a single word that is equivalent to an expression or an idea or a set of words together. Thanks - Ezee

    I'm sorry but I don't understand your question. Do you want a single word which is a synonym for a specific expression/idea/set of words? Or a single word which is a collective term for expressions?
