5.0 von 5 Sternen A necessity for an interesting and appropriate vocabulary 23. Januar 2009
Von Fred - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have used Doubleday Roget's Thesaurus in Dictionary Form for 30 plus years. I started using it in college because it was easy to look up words in the dictionary format. I continued using it in my career as a writer. I cannot imagine writing letters, speeches, etc. without it. Now that I have retired, my wife uses my old Roget's Thesaurus for her crossword puzzles and loves it. Between the two of us, we wore it out. This new edition is as good as the previous one. If you think you will write something, I highly recommend it. If you think you will use it a lot (as I did), you might want to get the hardcover version. As I mentioned, my old hardcover Thesaurus lasted over 30 years.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Thesaurus Currently Available for the Kindle 4. November 2010
Von Lesley O'Neil - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the best thesaurus currently available for the Kindle, in my opinion.

When you type in a word and press the centre of the five-way (you don't even have to click on 'find'), you are given a selection of references, by location, where the word appears. You can click on the header for each location to see if it is one that you want to use (if you cannot tell right away, from the amount of context provided); if it doesn't fill your needs, press 'back' and go to the next location.

The only seemingly awkward part of this is that once you've done one search, you have to do the next one from where you were last; just feels counterintuitive, although it works very well.

Best choice for the Kindle, for sure!

Edited to add: Do give your Kindle time to index the thesaurus before you try to use it; it may take a while!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to use on Kindle 11. September 2010
Von J. Lucas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is a good thesaurus if this was in print form. However, there are no navigations like the built in dictionary in Kindle. I've tried to search for a word by typing it, but there is no search bar to type for your exact word. I also tried the "Go to..." function if there is at least a Table of Contents that split up each alphabet, but none like that. The closest thing for a word search would be the "Search This Book" option, but that will have multiple location results because the word "discover" is in Location 122, 567, 890, 2546, 7890, and does not locate the exact word.

Is there a Thesaurus that is built like the one we have for Kindle where there is a word search bar?

1.0 von 5 Sternen Does Not Play Well With Kindle 20. Januar 2011
Von Cactus Tall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased the Doubleday Roget's Thesaurus for my Kindle. I do a lot of writing, so I purchased it so I could have access to variations or synonyms of words.

This e-book does not function correctly with the Kindle. As opposed to the original dictionary supplied with the Kindle, when you type in a word to search for, the records returned does not lead you to the actual word entry and location itself. Rather, the Kindle just returns locations to every instance of the word but not the actual word followed by synonyms. If I search for 'air' for instance, I want the kindle to go to the actual location of the word "air", followed by the synonyms for that word, not instances of the word in other words. This is a broken e-book.

Don't purchase this unless you want to scroll forward and backwards through page after page trying to find the word you searched for. This e-book should be taken off the market until it works correctly with the Kindle.

I gave this book two stars because it's at least alphebetical and thank goodness for Amazon's return policy. I called customer service and it promises to refund my purchase price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Thesaurus Available 21. Mai 2009
Von ScienceAndMath - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this thesaurus back in 1990 and had it all throughout high school and college. For some reason it was lost or thrown away when I moved. I'm happy to see it available here since its simple format and inventory of synonyms and antonyms make it the best thasaurus I've ever used. You can't compare those available on computers with the traditional book format. I recommend this to anyone wanting to season their letters, research papers, and the like with a more descriptive and eloquent vocabulary. The bargain price is a plus, also.
