Publisher Comments:

This major new edition of the Color Oxford English Thesaurus, offers the most accurate and up-to-date coverage of essential vocabulary for all your writing needs.

Based on evidence from the Oxford English Corpus--the same database that informs the Oxford English Dictionary--it provides a fresh selection of 140,000 alternative and opposite words, and gives the closest and most frequently used synonyms first, making the thesaurus quick and easy to use. Thousands of real examples of usage show synonyms in context and help you to identify the correct sense. A brand-new "Better Writing" section at the center of the book offers advice on improving your writing skills and getting the best out of your thesaurus. Using national curriculum guidelines and teacher review for selection of both headwords and synonyms and appropriate level of vocabulary, this is a perfect thesaurus for use by mid- to upper-secondary school students. In addition, there is a new layout featuring bold, colored headwords and core synonyms that make the dictionary easier to navigate than ever.

All of these features are packed into a durable, portable format, making the Color Oxford English Thesaurus suitable for use at school, but also handy for home and the office.
