Review

'plethora of intriguing word lists'
http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/robert-williams/english-language-evolution_b_1824192.html?utm_hp_ref=uk

(The Huffington Post)

'If someone says, "You butters muffin top. I'm going to defriend you, you oversharer," prepare yourself for an argument...[these] are just four of the new words and terms in the latest Chambers Thesaurus' (Sunday Times)

What We've Learnt This Week in Books: 'the publication this week of the updated edition of the Chambers thesaurus has provided a glimpse into the very latest contemporary culture.' (Sunday Times)

'The new words that may have a familiar ring: Celebutante, defriend and ringxiety. A thousand new words published in the Word Lover's Gallimaufry....a special section of the latest edition of the Chambers Thesaurus that focuses on how our language is evolving.' (Daily Mail)

'Like everything else in the modern world, our language is changing with breathtaking rapidity. Every time a new edition of a dictionary or thesaurus is brought out, there's a whole collection of new words and phrases that reflect contemporary life. The latest Chambers Thesaurus contains what they call a 'Word Lover's Gallimaufry', a reassuringly old-fashioned title for a hotchpotch (the literal meaning of gallimaufry) of the cutting-edge vernacular of today.' (The Independent)

'Ever been on a date with a gastrosexual who has shocked his vegetables? If you're not sure of the answer, the new edition of The Chambers Thesaurus can help'. (Waitrose Weekend)

'Just the spot for a little 'intexication'. The legions of Hongkongers learning to walk the walk a whole new way with their mobile phones better start learning to talk the talk. For the mobile generation's coming of age is recognised in the latest Chambers Thesaurus with a special Word Lover's Gallimaufry section.' (The Hong Kong Standard)

'Words like notspot, ringxiety and intexicated are among a list of 1,000 new words and phrases included in the Word Lover's Gallimaufry, a special section of the latest edition of the Chambers Thesaurus that focuses on how our language is evolving.' (News Track India)

'One of the attractions of the Chambers Thesaurus is that it is just a great book to browse and I spent many enjoyable hours browsing it. It packs in lots of words and is arranged alphabetically, making it easier to refer to.' (The Virtual Linguist)

'The many explanations, examples, nuances and quotations turn this into a wordsmith's goldmine (or a Goldsmith's wordmine!).



This Thesaurus is not just for Christmas; it's for life (or, until the next edition comes out!)'

(Rosie Goldsmith, Broadcaster and Journalist)
