Whether you are struggling to recall a word that has slipped your mind, looking to find a more appropriate word than the one that you first thought of, or, indeed, battling with a seemingly impossible crossword clue, this book will prove an invaluable source of advice and suggestions. Arranged in a easy-to-follow A-Z form, it offers a vast selection of synonyms and antonyms for a whole host of words, ranging from the everyday to the comparatively esoteric. Each entry is simplicity itself to follow. It commences with words closest in meaning to the keyword, and then moves on to ones that are more distantly related, noting slang and jargon alternatives where appropriate, and also informal and colloquial expressions. Where a word has several different senses, these are clearly indicated and explained, and a list of synonyms is then attached to each meaning. antonyms are also included where appropriate, serving to stimulate lateral thinking and to show how different words interrelate.
