Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
One of the most valuable word references to be found anywhere! Roget's Superthesaurus contains more than 400,000 words, with the latest edition offering more than 2,000 new or expanded entries. In a single volume you get synonyms, antonyms, a collection of quotations, and a word-find reverse dictionary for those occasions when you know what something is but can't remember what it's called. Sample sentences, slang terms, pronunciation guides, and dictionary definitions make this one of the most versatile writing reference books on any shelf. When you're writing short and tight, finding just the right word can be all-important.
Booknews
The alphabetical listing includes synonyms, antonyms, quotations that provide someone's perspective on the word or illustrate its use, cross-references that in many cases turn out to be sufficient in themselves, marked slang and informal terms, and a reverse dictionary with definitions referring to the word or words. Entries for unusual words, including aberration, faux pas, and prodigal, provides pronunciation guides and dictionary definitions. No date is noted for the first edition.

    Outstanding!

    Packed with material but certainly not unwieldy, this attractively-presented thesaurus is definitely the best available. It doesn't simply give you lists of synonyms, it provides pronounciations where they're needed and even sample sentences. Most interesting is the Word Find option, which for selected entries gives extensive lists of related words beyond the synonyms. This is a top-of-the-line reference work, ideal not just for students and writers, but for everyone.

    Worth every penny spent!!!!

    An amazing well-made resource!! The title is so modest compared to the capabilities of this book. It provides, in an easy to use dictionary format, both thesaurus, dictonary, usage, antonym, and synonyms for each word. Also, letter search option makes it easy t look up words by first letter, just like a dictionary. Easy to use, many excellent features, just wish there was a six star rating!!!

    Not good on nook

    This is not useful on a nook as a book. You cant search for the word you want. I tried it, it dosent work. I called b&n and they refunded my money. There is an app that you can get that is searchable. Dont make the same mistake I did, buy the app.
