Overview

Barron's Pocket Dictionary & Thesaurus by Robert Allen

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.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IT IS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY IT DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH WORDS IN IT LIKE SURMISE OR EXISTENTIALISM AND MANY MORE THAT I WANTED TO LOOK UP I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE.

This is great to have on your desk for those quick look ups. I am not the greatest speller and hated to have to drag out my big dictionary. So this little guy is just perfect. I would recommend this for students to keep in their backpacks cause it also has a nice sturdy cover.
