This is the first ever bilingual thesaurus of its kind. The book is aimed at all English-speaking learners and users of French at an intermediate to advanced level. It is arranged thematically rather than alphabetically, and under each theme learners will find synonyms and related French words and phrases for writing or speaking about the theme, as well as sayings, metaphors, proverbs and famous quotations. Every word, phrase and example has an English translation. Two alphabetical indexes of more than 8,000 words each enable easy access to the book.
