This new edition of the Concise Oxford Thesaurus has been updated with new choices of synonyms and a new design. The Concise Oxford Thesaurus is a comprehensive reference text, the perfect tool to use to improve your writing style, whether you are composing a letter, essay or report, or writing creatively. It is also great for finding the word on the tip of your tongue, or for word games. The new centre section contains lists of nouns from illnesses to insects, and vegetables to veins to give you the edge in solving crosswords and word puzzles, as well as being a useful encyclopedic reference. The Concise Oxford Thesaurus also contains Word Links to help you find related words. So, for example, look up the word night and you will find nocturnal; look up light, and you will find optics. Hundreds more have been added new to this edition, helping you find the word you need every time.
