If you don't have this book, you should. It is not simply lists of synonyms -- it explains the shades of meaning and nuance among close synonyms and increases your ability to use not simply a synonym, but the appropriate synonym.

Format: Hardcover
A very useful book for foreign language learners. However the online information is messed up, such as publication date, number of page, etc. It seems that M-W hasn't done any revison to the content since 1968.

Have you ever been at a loss how to distinguish the differences among much-alike synonyms, and how to use them precisely? Well, that's why they are called synonyms, which from time to time baffle our understanding. This book can save you from such a state of confusion. By advising you the true meaning of each word and exemplifying in sentences, it helps you use the right word in the right place. This is the strength of this book, which stands out from the rest.

I have another little reference book on synonyms published by Oxford, which is quite handy. But I tend to consult this book before I put each specific word into sentences, which makes me feel more comfortable.
