The Thinker's Thesaurus: Sophisticated Alternatives to Common Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you find that your regular thesaurus spits out the same old words already running through your head? Are the lists boring, repetitive, and generally unhelpful? Peter E. Meltzer thought so and decided to create a unique thesaurus that would offer interesting, original synonyms along with contextual examples. He quotes from a range of recent media--including books and hundreds of magazines and newspapers--to reassure readers that though the words might be unfamiliar, they are all completely legitimate words in current use. The first edition was the top-selling thesaurus in the United States on numerous occasions. The second edition has been expanded by 50 percent and includes a new introduction that lays out the goals and methods of the thesaurus. This highly entertaining and informative book is truly a dream come true, not only for logophiles but for anyone wishing to enhance their writing through these wonderful words.

Synopsis:

The go-to guide for finding those exceptional and unexpected words that will bring your writing to the next level.
