This new edition features a wider selection of advanced words, science and technological words, as well as words on topics that have become more popular since the last update, such as computers and the Internet. New entries include abate, aboriginal, closure, efficacy, intuitive, misanthrope, preponderance, rapacious, raspy, sophistry, trenchant, viscous, vitriol, and more. With thousands of new entries and updates to existing entries, The Facts On File Student's Thesaurus, Third Edition is the perfect resource for junior and high school students looking for a concise, easy-to-use thesaurus.
