For anyone who has ever spent time going back and forth from the thesaurus to the dictionary, in search of just the right word, The Oxford American Dictionary and Thesaurus is the perfect tool - an all-in-one desk reference offering the range and depth of a full dictionary, with a wideselection of synonyms and antonyms, plus valuable writing tips and information - all combined in one convenient, integrated volume. The Second Edition contains more than 150,000 words, phrases and definitions - twice as many as the competition - plus approximately 184,000 synonyms and antonyms. More important, the new edition now completely integrates the dictionary and thesaurus text, with the synonyms and antonyms directlyfollowing the dictionary definitions of their related part of speech. The new edition also boasts a fresh redesign of the interior, featuring an open, well-spaced layout and a more readable type, with the thesaurus sections clearly differentiated from the dictionary text for optimal clarity andusability. To accompany this fresh design, the book includes more than seventy pages of entirely revised supplementary material, including Usage Notes, Word Links, Choose the Right Word boxes, Word Toolkits, thematic lists, US/British equivalents, and a grammar guide - seamlessly blended into theprinciple text. And finally, many new headwords and example sentences have been added and the text has been revised throughout. With definitions and synonyms grouped together, writers can now know instantly if a particular word is the one that best captures what they want to say. Authoritative, up to date, and attractively redesigned, the second edition of the Oxford American Dictionary and Thesaurus is an essential resourcefor students, writers, and anyone else who wants to write clearly, precisely, and with power.
