Another good example of phrasing is when you're describing a person who committed an error. Are they mistaken or are they wrong? Think about it. Would you rather be told you were mistaken or that you were wrong?
Phrasing is a part of writing that shouldn't be ignored. Was the night moist with a cool breeze or was it damp with a bitter wind? It's a fun mental exercise to come up with multiple ways of saying the same thing that bring to mind completely different images, feelings, or tones. Is the person thin or bony or are they skeletal? Did he say, "this is something my mother would like," (awww) or did she say, "mother would be pleased?" (ewww)
If words paint pictures, phrasing is the shading of those images.
