Now this revolutionary, best-selling volume is available in a completely revised edition that is perfect for students, business people, writers, and anyone else who finds themselves frequently in need of an amplified vocabulary. New to this edition are Oxford's Synonym Studies, which provide in-depth comparisons of closely related words (e.g., doleful, dour, glum, lugubrious, melancholy, saturnine, and sullen; or conundrum, enigma, mystery, paradox, puzzle, and riddle), and updated appendices for Countries, Area Codes, and Weights & Measures, plus hundreds of brand new words.
