Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roget's International Thesaurus® is the ultimate cure for tip-of-the-tongue-itis.

Easy To Use: Unlike alphabetical thesauruses, Roget's International Thesaurus® works the same way your brain does. First, you figure out the general category: Are you looking for a word related to values and ideals? Measure and shape? Then, look up the keywords to find the exact entry you're seeking. Plus, thousands of cross-references throughout lead to other helpful categories.

Comprehensive: More than 325,000 words and phrases in 1,072 categories compose this new edition of Roget's, including the newest slang words and expressions. In addition, hundreds of supplemental word lists supply the names of things that have no synonyms (wines, weapons, animals, state mottoes, and more).

Better Than The Rest: Just look at how a single entry lines up:

Synopsis:

A classic reference book that has been used by millions all over the world, Rogets International Thesaurus is the product of more than a century and a half of continual expansion, reorganization, and improvement. Today this book is not only the most time-tested and bestselling thesaurus ever, but, newly revised, it is also the most up-to-date and comprehensive reflection of the English language as it is currently used.

The revolutionary achievement of Dr. Peter Mark Rogets first edition in 1852 was the development of a brand-new principle: the arrangement of words and phrases according to their meanings. Dr. Rogets system brings together in one place all the terms associated with a single thought or concept; it allows a wide-ranging survey of language within a book of relatively modest size, without the space-consuming repetitions that so severely limit the scope of thesauruses arranged in a dictionary format with A-to-Z entries. This brilliant organization makes Rogets International Thesaurus both the most efficient word finder and a cutting-edge aid in stimulating thought, organizing ideas, and writing and speaking more clearly and effectively.

This revised and updated seventh edition features thousands of new words and phrases, including the newest slang words and expressions that color and inform everyday language. At the same time, it retains all the hallmarks that have made Rogets International Thesaurus the most popular word reference book next to the dictionary.
