Synopsis

Collins School Thesaurus Trusted Support for Learning by Collins Dictionaries

The essential word finder for all students of English. Each entry is followed by a wide range of alternative words and examples, making it easy to choose the most appropriate alternative for every context. Planned in consultation with teachers and supporting the requirements of the school National Curriculum, this thesaurus has a clear and easy-to-use layout, with an alphabetical indicator on each page, making it easy to find information quickly. It includes thousands of synonyms and antonyms as well as short definitions for all main entry words. Examples are given for all synonyms to show how they are used and to help students choose the right one for their context. The 'more synonyms' feature and 'types of' panels help to extend students' vocabulary and extra help is given to help avoid overuse of very common words. A special section focusses on writing skills and helps students to use language effectively and achieve success in all areas of written work.
