Product Description

Ever wanted to use the word napiform (adj. having the shape of a turnip) in a sentence? Mention that a friend is acting like a hotspur (n. a rah, impetuous person)? Describe the fanfaronade (n. boasting talk; bravado; bluster) of a colleague?
Here are all the great words the most articulate writers use and you wished you knew--gathered together to help you make your explanations, arguments, descriptions, and narratives tronger and more interesting. These are words you might read in newspapers and books or hear in literate conversation, distilled in one clear, useful reference. You may recognize them or have a vague sense of their meaning or understand them but not be able to use them with confidence. This book compiles these terms for you to browse, reference, learn, and use to enhance your vocabulary and ease communication in reading, writing, and conversation.
A wide vocabulary is an arsenal that marshals your ideas and generates powerful arguments. What's the word I'm looking for? is a common lament. Here you find the words that perfectly convey your message concisely and accurately. And the words are fun. We all know the definitions of common words, but a flip through this book will reveal a wide array of terms that you will want to write down, memorize and use to clarify and fortify your message.
