American Heritage Thesaurus for Learners of English

American Heritage Thesaurus for Learners of English

by Editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries, Joyce LeBaron

Learning to use synonyms in another language can be hard, challenging, complicated, even trying. This unique reference, the only book of its kind in the U.S. market, contains more than 6,000 synonyms that have been carefully chosen for their usefulness to students of English, both intermediate and advanced. Every synonym has a short, clear definition that helps distinguish it from other synonyms in its group and its own example sentence showing proper usage and clarifying shades of meaning.
A useful appendix includes thematic word groups, a list of frequently misspelled words, irregular verbs, and information on common idioms, sound-alikes, and other areas of difficulty for English learners.
