A complete reference library for home, school or office.
This handy reference set includes three useful resources: the fifth edition of the paperback Webster’s New World Dictionary, Webster’s New Roget’s Thesaurus, and Webster’s New Essential Writer’s Companion. For use at home, in school, or at the office, these authoritative works are an ideal addition to any desk.
The Webster’s New World Dictionary has been completely updated, with over 1,200 new words and senses that reflect recent developments in the sciences, technology, and popular culture. Clear, straightforward definitions are supplemented by pronunciations, inflections of irregular verbs and plural nouns, and selected etymologies. In the Webster's New Roget's Thesaurus, entries are arranged alphabetically. Complete synonym groups allow the user to see all the possible word choices in one place. Each synonym is cross-referenced to a category index that groups words related or opposite in meaning. Webster's New Essential Writer’s Companion is a helpful guide to the mechanics of good writing, with sections on grammar, punctuation, style, usage, and proofreading. Additional advice on constructing logical sentences and paragraphs shows how to build a convincing overall argument.
These three books are an essential resource to enhancing use of the English language.
