This revised edition of Barron's popular Pocket Dictionary & Thesaurus packs more than 40,000 words with their definitions and synonyms into a handy pocket-sized book. It features approximately 100,000 synonyms in total.
The two-in-one word guide is small enough to fit it into a backpack, carry to class, and use as a reliable reference when writing essays and term papers. The top part of each page is a standard pocket dictionary and the bottom part of the page is 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.
Corresponding dictionary and thesaurus entries are always cited on the same page for fast, easy reference.
