Product description

Writers looking for more than elementary synonyms found in a standard thesaurus will find exceptional and thoughtful alternatives in this advanced thesaurus. Neither weird nor arcane, each listed synonym is carefully chosen, defined by a 'clarifier', and used in an example from the popular press that demonstrates its contemporary usage. Words that may not be exact synonyms but anticipate what the reader was really looking for are also included; for example, in the listing for amusing, the word witling is featured, explained by the clarifier as a 'person who tries to be amusing but isn't'. Aimed at readers who want their writing and speaking to stand out, this thesaurus ensures that a synonym sought is a synonym well thought.

"Delves into the mostly untapped reservoir of the English lexicon, offering readers more than top-of-mind word choices." --"Dow Jones Newsletter"
