I ordered this to assist my daughter (9 years old) with her literacy work at school - the benefit of the Dictionary AND Thesaurus was to encourage her use of more descriptive words! The lay out is fab (and so easy to us) ........... find a word and the thesarus is directly under the word! (How easy) Very happy with it.

I bought the Oxford Dictionary & Thesaurus for my ten year old grandson to help him expand his vocabulary. It is beautifully presented and easy to navigate. The letter key index (down the right hand edge of the book) helps enormously to quickly find the section you want. My grandson was familiar with and able to use a dictionary, but found using a separate thesaurus a little bewildering. The Oxford Dictionary AND Thesaurus is an ideal literary tool as each word definition is followed by alternative choices:all in the one place. An ideal gift for any school child (or adult) who needs a little help in developing their literary skills. I highly recommend the Oxford Dictionary & Thesaurus. GrannyBee

Ordered this for my 8 yr old daughter and was pleasantly surprised with the layout...found easy to use and the combined meaning and thesaurus...works very well.Have to say...daughter initially felt dictionary own its own was better option...but since using few times... has familiarised with the format and is now very happy with it.

Downside in terms of content ...none...accept being paperback the binding and cover crease quite easiy on the corners....but at this price and combined with fast delivery from Amazon ...excellent value!

All homes should have one ..very useful for one and all...

I'm start college in September of this year and two of my subject are english lit and english lang so i thought i needed to be buying a dictionary- not just that, i needed to expand on my vocabulary drastically. I bought this because it had a thesaurus as well and the price was decent; and i can say i have had no problems with it- it fulfills it's purpose! Fast delivery by the service! All around a happy customer!:-)

A dictionary-come-thesaurus will never exactly set ones pulse racing with excitement, however if you are in the market for a point of reference for most common (and many un-common) words, this book may just fit the bill. It would be a pretty good buy as a stand-alone dictionary, but the added element of the thesaurus makes this a very good buy indeed. Good coverage yet small enough to carry around. Put it this way - if I lost my copy I would immediately buy the same again.

Very disappointed. Expecting to find aomprehensive dictionary/thesaurus, I found a minimal number of entries.
I have gone back to my battered and separate OED and Thesauras which contain infinitely more information.
Finally, for about the sixth time, can I mention again that my name is misspelt, Leslie, not Leeslie. A poor effort
for a world-wide. renowned company. Leslie Rowland.

So handy for children's homework time. Especially when looking for synonyms, antonyms and descriptive words. Very cheap too.
