Nouns and verbs may get most of the credit for being the building blocks of our language, but it's the adjective that adds colour, style and adornment to our speech and writing. From renowned lexicographer Eugene Ehrlich, here is the definitive collection of "golden" adjectives, especially selected for the extraordinarily discriminating user. Along with the selection of more than 1000 adjectives, Ehrlich discusses their fascinating etymologies, lists appropriate synonyms and antonyms, and provides pronunciation help. This is the ultimate reference book for readers, writers, students, word buffs, and anybody looking to improve his or her language skills. Ehrlich's The Highly Selective Dictionary for the Extraordinarily Literate has sold more than 100, 000 copies and the Highly Selected Thesaurus has sold more then 120,000 copies.
