Quick Question about word usage

By April 20, 2004current affairs

Has anyone else noticed that it is now de rigeur to refer to a significant change of any sort as ‘a sea change’? I don’t know about you, but I’m sort of tired of reading this phrase. The only thing that intrigues me is how it originated. What exactly is a sea change?


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
