This is really a helpful guide. I keep it next to my computer, so it's always available when I'm stuck for a word. This is the second copy I've bought.
"Abundant Synonyms Choices" 26 July 2014
By RON 101 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The thesaurus is crammed with synonyms, over 250,000, very convenient to use too. This thesaurus is based on familiar and frequently used headwords arranged in alphabetical order and interconnected by cross reference, which makes it easier to find the relevant synonym one is searching for. Headwords are sub grouped into their alternative meanings, followed by synonyms with common meaning(s) but yet slightly different purports. Each synonym subgroup contains plentiful terms and flavours to choose from to express oneself, as: colloquial, slang, taboo, old-fashioned, verb phrase, idioms, technical and more. Putting together all these features, facilitates choices for the precise synonym meaning that one has in mind.
I enjoy too just browsing this thesaurus, it not only enriches one's vocabulary, but it's also entertaining; it often puts a smile on my face while reading humorous slang terms and phrases.
