This box set – containing two popular paperback titles, the Collins Paperback Dictionary and the Collins Paperback Thesaurus – is the ideal all-in-one language reference set for home, school and office.
Since its first edition in 1986, the Collins Paperback Thesaurus has been a consistent bestseller. Now the new fourth edition offers the user a wider choice of alternatives than ever before, with a completely revised text and a layout designed for maximum ease of use. The most helpful synonyms in each entry are given first and highlighted so that they can be found instantly. Antonym lists are also included at many key entries to provide another way of expressing yourself.
The words and meanings in the Collins Paperback Dictionary are those most likely to be encountered in general use across a wide range of subject areas, including those in the school curriculum. All meanings are written in a clear and easy-to-understand style and examples have been taken from the Bank of English to show natural everyday usage so the dictionary is relevant to today’s user. Spelling help is provided by the inclusion of thousands of spelling forms shown in bold type. In addition, there are newly compiled usage notes throughout the text which give details of past and present usage and advise the user on current best practice.
