Synopsis

The Facts on File Student's Thesaurus by Marc McCutcheon

The Facts On File Student's Thesaurus, Third Edition includes listings for more than 7,000 of the most commonly used words in the English language. Arranged in an easy-to-use A-to-Z format, this thesaurus includes words carefully selected for junior and senior high school students, making it far more accessible than references designed for adults. Each entry includes identifications of the part of speech, a carefully selected list of synonyms (with those most closely resembling the entry given first), a list of antonyms (where applicable), and a sample sentence. This new edition features a wider selection of advanced words, science and technological words, and 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.
