Etymology

Past participle of [[clicher#|clicher]] (to stereotype", originally, "to copy, literally to click, clink), from Template:Frm, from Template:Fro {{ Template:Fro/script |[[cliquer#Template:Fro|cliquer]]|face=term|lang=fro}} (to click, clack, sound, resound), of Template:Gem origin, related to [[klikken#|klikken]] (to click, rattle), {{ Template:Nds/script |[[klikken#|klikken]]|face=term|lang=nds}} (to click), [[klicken#|klicken]] (to click), [[klikke#|klikke]] (to click), [[klicka#|klicka]] (to click). Probably onomatopoeic, and probably influenced by Template:Gmh {{ Template:Gmh/script |[[klitsch#Template:Gmh|klitsch]]|face=term|lang=gmh}} (soft, pulpy mass), from the old technique of creating a printing plate. More at [[click#|click]].

    En stylistique, on appelle cliché toute expression qui se trouve banalisée par l'emploi trop courant qui en a déjà été fait (l'aurore aux doigts de rose, l'astre des nuits).
