This revised edition of Oxford's popular Little Thesaurus, which now includes a Reverse Dictionary Supplement, provides even more help with choosing words for writing, speaking, or word games. 150,000 alternative and opposite words are set out in a clear, accessible layout, with plenty of
example phrases and usage labels so that you pick the most appropriate word for the context you need. Its portable size and durable binding make it a practical and long-lasting reference. The new Reverse Dictionary acts as a guide to related words, a puzzle solver, and vocabulary builder all in one;
it works by leading you from words with which you are very familiar to more unusual, complex alternatives.
