    Re: cliches

    We don't do people's assignments for them. Are you sure that you have the letters and spaces in all the right places?


    However, if you go to www.onelook.com you can use a question mark when you don't know a letter- so b??k would giver you a list of every 4-letter word staring with b and finishing with k, so you'd get a list with book, bank, beak, etc. If you are not sure how many letters, use *, which will search for any number of letters, so b*k would get all those words plus blank, etc.
