Completely revised and updated, the third edition has more than 300 entries and 1,200 synonyms. Each entry includes a list of synonyms and an explanation of the core meaning shared by each word in the group. When synonyms in a group have subtle distinctions, these nuances are clearly described. Every synonym is illustrated with a clear example sentence or a quotation to help distinguish shades of meaning and illustrate how choosing the right word can result in more powerful and precise writing and communication. Authors quoted range from classic novelists such as Jane Austen & Charles Dickens, to contemporary writers such as Cynthia Ozick & David Sedaris.
Antonyms included with many entries further expand vocabulary. An index at the end of the book lists all synonyms and antonyms for quick access to the right word. Grades 7 & up. 96 pages, paperback.
