Book Description

24 Nov 2005 Oxford Paperback Reference
The Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms provides an easy-to-use source of over 150,000 alternative and opposite words to improve your wordpower and communication skills, and make your English more interesting and original. For example, why call something 'nice', when you can describe it as 'gratifying' or 'delightful'? For each entry, synonyms are listed alphabetically, and antonyms are placed at the end of entries where appropriate. There are examples to show how words of less obvious senses are used, and markers such as 'informal', 'derogatory', and 'obsolete' highlight the usage style. There is extensive cross-referencing to other entries for extended lists of synonyms and to related words to broaden your knowledge. There is also a Lexicon of Hard Words with interesting and unusual words as diverse as erubescence (blushing) and jumbal (sweet crisp cake), which will provide fascinating and useful additions to anyone's vocabulary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cryptic Crosswords 15 May 2011
By Dickie
This is an excellent book for aiding in solving cryptic crosswords. We have an old copy that was falling apart and have struggled to find a replacement in the shops. This one was delivered on time in perfect condition
