Designed for students 11 to 16 who are solidifying their reading and writing skills, as well as adults learning English as a second language, this thesaurus provides much more than simple lists of related words. The 300 entries cover essential word groups from accompany to zest with 1200 synonyms, each of which is given illustrative sentences or phrases to help distinguish shades of meaning and demonstrate how the right word results in more powerful and precise communications. Many entries include quotations from well-known classic and contemporary authors, while all synonyms and antonyms are indexed.
