This is the first comprehensive Thesaurus of current English published by Oxford University Press. Headwords are readily found in an A-Z listing, and a full synonym index enables readers to find Synonyms which are not also headwords.
The Oxford Thesaurus emphasises current English, but includes enough quaint terms and plenty of regional, idiomatic and slang terms in English from around the world to provide colourful options. Most entries provide sample sentences, but the bulk of the tome is composed of Synonyms (with antonyms--added for this second edition--for contrast), so you needn't wade through lots of excess verbiage when what you really want is the phrase that says what you have in mind, with the right tone and flair. The Oxford Thesaurus makes it effortless. --Stephanie Gold --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
