A million dollars worth of fifty-cent words. --Erin McKean, editor, Verbatim"

This book will lend hours of pleasure as well as help you preserve the highest layers of the English vocabulary.--John McWhorter, author of The Language Hoax"

A million dollars worth of fifty-cent words.--Erin McKean, editor, Verbatim"

Delves into the mostly untapped reservoir of the English lexicon, offering readers more than top-of-mind word choices.

A million dollars' worth of fifty-cent words.--Erin McKean, editor, Verbatim

Synopsis

Writers looking for more than elementary synonyms found in a standard thesaurus will find exceptional and thoughtful alternatives in this advanced thesaurus. Neither weird nor arcane, each listed synonym is carefully chosen, defined by a 'clarifier', and used in an example from the popular press that demonstrates its contemporary usage. Words that may not be exact synonyms but anticipate what the reader was really looking for are also included; for example, in the listing for amusing, the word witling is featured, explained by the clarifier as a 'person who tries to be amusing but isn't'. Aimed at readers who want their writing and speaking to stand out, this thesaurus ensures that a synonym sought is a synonym well thought. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An amusement park for the mind 2. Januar 2017
Von William 1611 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a perfectly delightful book (ambrosial, one might say): a thesaurus containing unusual (selcouth) or archaic (superannuated) synonyms for common words. It is, of course, utterly frivolous (nugacious), insofar as the tendency in modern writing is to dumb things down to the lowest common denominator, and anyone using unfamiliar words is immediately branded a snob, a poseur, or (God forbid) an elitist (a mandarin). In the 21st century, any word or phrase not used regularly in the Common Core curriculum, or not easily rendered in absurd abbreviations for use in Twitter, is considered worthless (nugatory) or even sinister (baleful). But those few readers who still adore the infinite varieties of language and wordplay will find the book a source of joy, erudition, and blessed relief from our "democratized" language.

One reviewer has complained that the book is not "complete," because there are innumerable words which are not included, but this is not meant to be the latest edition of Roget: it is rather a collection of enjoyable synonyms for thousands of words that we use routinely, not even suspecting that a synonym exists. Logophiles will be enraptured; logomaniacs will be momentarily satisfied; and anyone else who simply enjoys language will be hugely entertained.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful 30. August 2016

A little high brow but contains some useful words you might not think of. Handy to have around.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just reading the prolepsis convinced me that this book would sharpen my vocabulary. 2. Februar 2014
Von Neil - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I started it January 14. I'm plowing through it A to Z, in a strictly abecedarian march. I hope to finish the letter B before the Super Bowl, and Z by Thanksgiving. The word selection is advanced, The definitions concise & tachlis. The examples are recent and fill out the meaning. It's better than a vocabulary book if you are trying to prepare for an SAT type exam. It's better than a first generation thesaurus if you are trying to find the word that gives a special nuance.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Needs more thinking 9. Dezember 2012
Von The Bobber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Bought it for my KIndle and wish I had gotten the paper format. It would be easier to flip through. Was disappointed in the number of vocabulary words defined. Was hoping for a larger selection.
