Description

Rather than forcing readers to flip between the thesaurus for synonyms and the dictionary for definitions, the Oxford Pocket Dictionary and Thesaurus provides a thoroughly integrated blend of entries from the dictionary and the thesaurus in a single, compact volume. This unified approach treats meanings and related words within the same entry, making it easy to find an abundance of information about any word, and providing a far more extensive analysis of the variety and nuances of our language than is possible in a dictionary or thesaurus alone. Founded on Oxford's renowned English language database, this is guaranteed to be the most frequently used reference work you own.show more
