SUMMARY

A superb resource for writers that packs an extraordinary amount of information in a convenient, affordable paperback format, this second edition of the Pocket Oxford American Thesaurus features a new text with more than 15,000 main entries and more than 350,000 synonyms and antonyms, with sample sentences or phrases for virtually every sense. The new edition makes it easy to find the perfect word, with Oxford's unique arrangement of core senses and subsenses. We draw on the latest evidence from the Oxford English Corpus--a vast database of more than two billion words--to uncover the most common and most important meanings of words and phrases in contemporary American English. We then use these findings to organize the entries in the thesaurus, listing synonyms in order of frequency of use, so that the first choice you see is probably the one you need, and preventing you from inadvertently picking a word that is not in common use. In addition, virtually every sense includes a sample sentence drawn from the Corpus, revealing how the words are used in actual speech. And finally, the thesaurus now boasts a completely new page layout, with a more open and accessible design, with an emphasis on readability. Portable, affordable, reliable, this revolutionary new resource stands on the shoulders of the colossal Oxford English Corpus, providing readers with the clearest vision of American English as it exists today. No other thesaurus on the market has anything like this authority behind it. It is the first choice for writers on the go and for anyone who wants to select words accurately and with confidence.Oxford is the author of 'Oxford Pocket American Thesaurus of Current English ', published 2008 under ISBN 9780195301694 and ISBN 0195301692.
