5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reference, 29 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Thesaurus of English |s au (Hardcover)
How did I ever manage without it? A well produced and organised comprehensive thesaurus. I find it hard not to get side-tracked from my intended search each time I use the volume because something else interesting always catches my eye. A great investment that will serve for years.

Hi, i am a Greek songwriter and i would like to ask someone to explain me what is the deference between a dictionary (which has for example more than 2000 pages) and a Thesaurus (of the same publisher, which has about 1000 pages)...are there any elements of the language (phrases, idioms, words, etc.) included in both of them? Which elements can be found only in a dictionary and which only in a thesaurus? I'm interested in songwriting (in English)so, which one would help me more in that? I surely need to study the language in depth...do i need to study or have a look at, when necessary, on both of them? and why? I would be thankful to receive an answer.

and what about Advanced Learner's Dictionaries? How complete are they? Should i prefer this one instead of the normal dictionary or the thesaurus?

I am not an expert - just a user like yourself but I would suggest that you will find both useful. The dictionary to supply meanings, with the Thesaurus to provide associations with other words. I have no knowledge of the Advanced Learner's Dictionaries, so I'm afraid that I can't help there.
