The Thinker's Thesaurus takes care of both problems by specializing in providing interesting, unique, "hard" words that provide just the right nuance, as well as "clarifying entries" that include parenthetical notes to clarify synonyms that simply can't be conveyed in a single word (e.g. malversation for wrongdoing (in public office) ). Contextual sentences provide an easy way to consider and evaluate different word choices; word choices break free from matching parts of speech, instead lining up adjectives to nouns (e.g. Lions (of, relating to, or characteristic of) adj. leonine).
Featuring only recognized words (not archaic, rare, or obsolete), The Thinker's Thesaurus presents its case for an well-rounded vocabulary in the included essay "In Defense of the Hard Word".and will inspire you to shed your fears of being called "elitist" and stand up for improving your knowledge of English in an often dumbed-down world. 672 pages, softcover.
