The actual 'formula' part consists *only* of the actual model specification formula (LHS ~ RHS), not the additional arguments to a model function or other function that takes a formula as an argument (eg. boxplot()).
Thus:
myformula <- as.formula(paste(examplephraze,"~group"))
> myformula
for.my.example ~ group
