Interest in the origins of words and phrases started with a simple web page called Ye Olde English Sayings which led to a world-wide debate over the origins of many common phrases such as dressed to the nines and saved by the bell. That first page grew quickly and What’s the Meaning of This? and AmeriSlang were created.

Media professionals can now use Business Buylines web site to help them develop ideas for a wide range of projects. The extensive collection of clichés, mottos and slogans may hold the answer for creative types who are feeling a bit creatively challenged.
