Overview


This revised edition of the popular Barron's Dictionary & Thesaurus packs more than 40,000 words with their definitions and synonyms into a handy pocket-sized book. The new edition is small enough so that students can conveniently fit it into a backpack, carry to classes, and use as a reliable reference when writing essays and term papers. It's a two-in-one word guide, with the top portion of each page serving as a standard pocket dictionary and the bottom part of the page set up in a thesaurus format. Headwords in both sections are printed in color. Each dictionary headword is followed by its part of speech and definition. Every thesaurus headword--in addition to its list of synonyms--comes with an example sentence that uses the word in its standard context. The thesaurus section offers a total of approximately 100,000 synonyms for the book's headwords. Corresponding dictionary and thesaurus entries are always cited on the same page for fast, easy reference.
