Had read reviews for the cheaper roget's and was a
little worried I wouldn't be able to search, but the
Kindle search facility works fine with it. I have got it
mainly to use for crosswords, the only down side of this
version is that it uses american spelling eg color instead of
As a teacher of English to young children and an aspiring writer, this edition is an invaluable tool because of its,
* lay-out (seems daunting on first viewing, but it does make sense)
* range (essentially words of common usage as opposed to strictly technical vocab)
* distinction between the different 'Englishes' - I feel that this is relevant to anyone concerned with the cultural predominance of 'American English'
Every home needs one - and this is undoubtedly the best and quite possibly the cheapest.
I have now dropped this to 1-star because, despite the fact that the title says 'Latest Edition 2010', this is an ancient version of Roget, completely out of date. This problem is not apparent from the sample (which can't be searched), but as soon as I tried to use my purchased copy seriously I ran into problems.
I searched for the word 'yob', which is a 19th Century creation, so not that new.
I tried a few synonyms of yob that I could think of - 'yobbo', 'punk', 'skinhead' - still nothing. I then searched for the word 'fascist'. Again, nothing.
So I got out my paper version of Roget, 1987 edition, and I realised the two books were totally different. This Kindle version looks like the original 1852 edition. If that's what you want this is great value for money. But if you want an up to date edition that uses modern language, this is definitely not for you.
I shall be complaining to Amazon about the misrepresentation.
YET INDEXED TRY LATER' this is true both on my kindle and computer, both updated separately.

I didn't buy this because it looked a bit old. I got out Robert A Dutch's revision and compared Look Inside with some of the early sections in Dutch. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Tony Scott
