The New Oxford Thesaurus of English Summary


The New Oxford Thesaurus of English by Edited by Patrick Hanks

The New Oxford Thesaurus of English is a completely new and unique top-of-the-range thesaurus. It is the result of intensive research and exploitation of Oxford's unique bank of linguistic databases. It provides comprehensive coverage of English as it is used today, including World English, and rare, unusual, and colloquial senses. The A-Z format, elegant open design with new elements starting on a new line, and the most useful alternative words given first, make this thesaurus particularly accessible. Help on how to use senses correctly is given through practical example phrases and the cross-referencing system takes the user to other useful entries. Opposite and related words and combining forms are clearly marked to distinguish them from the rest of the entry. In-text notes give invaluable advice on the use of awkward and confusable synonyms, and boxed noun lists provide a wealth of information on a wide variety of subjects, from actors and actresses to types of whisky.
