About this item

This expanded third edition of The Thinker’s Thesaurus seeks to broaden the vocabularies of its readers and preserve the English language. It encourages writers and speakers to use words that are dictionary-recognized and in current usage but are normally unfamiliar for most English speakers and writers today. The Thinker’s Thesaurus focuses on more difficult words that are nonarchaic, includes a “Clarifier” feature that frees the writer or speaker from the limits imposed by the single base word structure of other word reference materials, provides actual examples of every entry, and includes an analysis of word derivation, usage, nuance, and both literal and figurative word usage. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
Writers looking for more than elementary synonyms found in a standard thesaurus will find exceptional and thoughtful alternatives in this advanced thesaurus. Neither weird nor arcane, each listed synonym is carefully chosen, defined by a "clarifier", and used in an example from the popular press that demonstrates its contemporary usage.
