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.
The thesaurus includes 12 months' access* to Oxford's premium online dictionary and thesaurus service, Oxford Dictionaries Online, updated regularly with the latest developments to words and meanings, so you will have the most accurate picture of English available.
Find out more about our living language using Oxford Dictionaries Online. Hear how words are spoken with thousands of audio pronunciations, and access over 1.9 million real English example sentences to see how words are used in context. Improve your confidence in writing with helpful grammar and punctuation guides, full thesaurus information, style and usage help, and much more.
