Description
The only thesaurus to include pronunciations, Roget's Student Thesaurus contains 600 entries in alphabetical order with over 4,000 synonyms and antonyms. Accompanying each entry is a concise definition. Synonyms are then defined and distinguished with an example sentence for each. There are also 300 brilliant full-color illustrations with captions.

Almost every entry includes an informative or entertaining feature to encourage students' curiosity about words: for example, idioms; Writing Tips; Word Workshops showing how to avoid overused words, such as very or good; etymologies; proverbs and photomontages from around the world, Notable Quotables, and brief excerpts from well-known literature. Essays on creativity and on the writing process, plus comprehensive indexes, appear at the back of the book.
