Description

Based on the ongoing research of Oxford Dictionaries and the authority of the Oxford English Corpus, this revised edition of the Oxford Thesaurus of English has been updated to include new and up-to-date synonyms and senses, and offers coverage of more alternative words than any other A-Z thesaurus. It is accessible and easy to use, listing synonyms in order of usefulness, and giving thousands of examples of words in use to help you choose the right synonym. The centre section of word lists has been fully revised and reorganized with its own quick-reference index and includes topics from clothes and food, to medicine and music, with new lists of foreign words and phrases, archaic words, imitative words, British and American equivalents, and more. It is an invaluable resource to help broaden your vocabulary and provide quick answers to word puzzles and crossword clues. This revised edition retains such popular features as Choose the Right Word panels which illustrate the differences between similar alternative words, and the Word Links panels, which show related words such as 'astronomy' at 'star' and help you to expand your vocabulary. The Oxford Thesaurus of English, revised edition, is ideal for use at home, school, and the office, and is a perfect reference tool to help with writing anything from a formal letter to a short story, as well as expanding your vocabulary and providing quick solutions to word puzzles and crossword clues.show more
