Name
       diction, explain - print wordy sentences; thesaurus for diction

Syntax
       diction [-ml] [-mm] [-n] [-f pfile] file...
       explain

Description
       The command finds all sentences in a document that contain phrases from
       a data base of bad or wordy diction.  Each phrase is bracketed  with  [
       ].   Because  runs  before looking at the text, formatting header files
       should be included as part of the input.

       The command is an interactive thesaurus for the phrases found  by  dic‐
       tion.

Options
       -mm		   Overrides default macro package -ms.

       -ml		   Causes deroff to skip lists.

       -fpfile		   Specifies pattern file in addition to default file.
			   Note that you can specify the -n flag  to  suppress
			   the default file.

Restrictions
       Use  of	non-standard  formatting  macros  may cause incorrect sentence
       breaks.
