Description

Combining two of the most trusted names in reference books, Bartlett and Roget, this thesaurus covers more than 350,000 terms and phrases, all fully indexed, with 6000 cross-references throughout. It also contains hundreds of illustrative quotations from sources ranging from The Bible to Bob Dylan, to enrich and amplify the entries. Whilst retaining the original Roget format of grouping words according to concept, rather than alphabetically, it utilizes an entirely contemporary language-classification system.show more
