    A MUST FOR HOME AND OFFICE

    Assiduously edited this thesaurus offers up to the minute listings of words we use, hear or read everyday. Included are 15,000 main entries and some 350,000 synonyms with notations that make clear the subtle nuances of inference among several closely related words. Headwords, presented in alphabetical order, are in eye friendly bold print. Following each headword is its part of speech, such as 'accredited' is followed by 'adjective.' When a certain word has the same spelling but a different meaning, which is known as a homograph, each meaning is treated as a separate word. Thus 'bank' us found as 'a grassy slope' and as 'financial institution' under separate headings. Synonyms are included in each listing, and the volume contains a punctuation guide, a usage guide, as well as a listing of easily confused words. At sea as to the proper usage of 'alternate' and 'alternative'? Just keep this handy volume at the ready. Wordsmiths will delight in the clarity and presentations of words in this thesaurus, and all of us will benefit from its use.
