      This link could add to the reliability of phrase origin finding in terms
      of accuracy of the information provided.


      <http://books.google.com/books?um=1&q=%22PHRASE+ORIGINS%
      22+OR+%22ORIGIN+OF+PHRASES%22&btnG=Search+Books>


      A shorter URL for the above link:


      <http://tinyurl.com/yzgrb5b>


      This link as well could prove useful:


      <http://scholar.google.com/scholar?um=1&q=%22PHRASE%20ORIGINS%
      22%20OR%20%22ORIGIN%20OF%20PHRASES%22&sa=N&hl=en&tab=ps>


      A shorter URL for the above link:

      And here is some media coverage of this topic:


      <http://news.google.com/archivesearch?um=1&cf=all&ned=
      us&hl=en&q=%22PHRASE+ORIGINS%22+OR+%22ORIGIN+OF+PHRASES%22&cf=all>


      A shorter URL for the above link:

      Trying to picture all of this content can phrase the nerves:


      <http://images.google.com/images?um=1&ned=us&hl=en&q=%22PHRASE%
      20ORIGINS%22%20OR%20%22ORIGIN%20OF%20PHRASES%22&cf=all&sa=N&tab=ni>


      A shorter URL for the above link:

      The topic has even gotten the attention of bloggers


      <http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch?um=1&ned=us&hl=en&q=%
      22PHRASE%20ORIGINS%22%20OR%20%22ORIGIN%20OF%20PHRASES%22&cf=

      The government even seems to be going through a phrase


      <http://www.google.com/unclesam?hl=en&q=%22PHRASE+
      ORIGINS%22+OR+%22ORIGIN+OF+PHRASES%22&btnG=Search>


      A shorter URL for the above link:


      <http://tinyurl.com/yfp4282>


      I even think we have content on Net-Gold regarding this subject:



      <http://www.google.com/search?q=(%22PHRASE+ORIGINS%22+OR+
      %22ORIGIN+OF+PHRASES%22)+and+%22net-gold%
      22+and+%22temple.edu%22&hl=en&filter=0>


      A shorter URL for the above link:


      <http://tinyurl.com/ybxhq8q>


      and of course there is always SCIRUS to turn to:


      <http://www.scirus.com/srsapp/search?q=%22PHRASE+
      ORIGINS%22+OR+%22ORIGIN+OF+PHRASES%22&t=all&sort=0&g=s>

      It may be important to keep in mind in public relations that folks who use
      phrases in their communication with you, may in fact be trying to
      preposition you.
