    Hi,

    For example, I might say " 'hit the hay' is another way of saying 'go to bed' ".
    Would I say "X est une autre façon pour dire Y", or is there another way of saying this? :)

    Ah, ok. Thank you. So, is "pour" incorrect, or less used?

    I've heard it but I think it's a mistake. You'd better use "de" anyway :)
