Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Forced to compete with electronic resources like thesaurus.com, which offers nearly instantaneous results and hyperlinked cross-references, linguistic stalwart Merriam-Webster offers a more conventional handheld guide that acts both as thesaurus and as dictionary. Entries often include denotative meaning, synonyms, antonyms, parts of speech, and sentence usage. Highly disappointing is that many entries force the user to locate another more generic term before sought-after information is presented. This makes the resource far less convenient and presents a greater chance of choosing a substitute without the appropriate connotative meaning. Recommended with reservations.
