A delightful and useful book 8 Oct. 2001
By Kevin B. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful and useful book. At least three kinds of people should buy it:
(1) People in computational linguistics and natural language processing. If you work in speech recognition, you need homophones to test (or illustrate challenges for) speech recognition systems. If you work in natural language processing, you need homographs to test your system's ability to handle lexical ambiguity. This book is a great source for both.
(2) People in phonetics and sociolinguistics. If you do experimental work in these fields, you want lots of minimal pairs. Although they're not labelled as such, this book will point you towards lots of minimal pairs for flapping, glide raising, and other phonological phenomena of English.
(3) People interested in the English language in general. I came across lots of interesting and cool words in here, and enjoy just flipping through this book.
In addition, the book is beautifully printed and bound. I would have expected it to cost a lot more.

Not for Everyone 14 May 2014
By Earle Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you enjoy words and language, this volume is superb! A great resource book, including spelling and usage. But it is not for the casual reader.

This is another good book to have around for teaching, or referencing words. It gives you the proper spelling and usage of the word.
