This is a new edition of the Concise Oxford Thesaurus, with updated
and improved text, new choices of synonyms, and a new design. The
Concise Oxford Thesaurus is a comprehensive reference text for the
bookshelf at home or in the office. Its usefulness means that it
won't stay on the shelf, however. The thesaurus is the perfect tool
to use to improve your writing style, whether you are composing a
letter, essay or report, or writing creatively. It is also great
for finding the word on the tip of your tongue, or for word games.
The new centre section in this Concise Oxford Thesaurus contains
lists of nouns from illnesses to insects, and vegetables to veins
to give you the edge in solving crosswords and word puzzles, as
well as being a useful encyclopedic reference. The Concise Oxford
Thesaurus also contains Word Links to help you find related words.
So, for example, look up the word 'night' and you will find
'nocturnal'; look up 'light', and you will find 'optics'. Hundreds
more have been added new to this edition, helping you find the word
you need every time.
