About this product
- DescriptionThe American Heritage(r) Roget's Thesaurus offers an intelligent and sensible guide to synym selection. Organized in an easy-to-use A-Z format, it provides a wide range of synyms, ranging from mainstream vocabulary to the colorful alternatives that make English such a rich and versatile language. Thousands of slang, informal, and regional words broaden the coverage even further, always clearly labeled to ensure that the writer chooses the right word for the right context. Each synym list focuses on a clear definition that quickly orients the user to the relevant meaning. To increase the number of synyms available to the reader, words with related meanings show cross-references to one ather. As additional support, hundreds of Core Synym Paragraphs explain the different nuances in meaning of some of the most basic and important synyms in English. Each paragraph includes a carefully written example sentence for every synym discussed or a pertinent quotation from a well-kwn author. No other thesaurus on the market offers as much help in distinguishing shades of meaning and illustrating appropriate usage.
