Excellent - an indispensable lexical enhancer
on 5 August 2013
As a child I was always engrossed in dictionaries, and found it a bit of a cheat that my Nana would have a thesaurus when attempting crosswords. I have found that Oxford were the easiest to navigate, and simple to use, and this Mini Thesaurus is no exception.
As well as acting as a normal thesaurus, Oxford have incorporated a simple 'word links' box which gives additional words for reference. This is a neat idea to assist in your linguistic understanding.
The mini thesaurus is obviously not as thorough as the full size version, but as a pocket version it is still a necessity around the house. I appreciate that computers may well be overtaking the written word in some regards, and indeed there are numerous online free thesauruses available, but I am sure that this is still the easiest way to cross reference words in your quest to defeat that tricky crossword. It therefore appears my Nana was right all along.
