A classic reference book that has been used by millions all over the world, Roget’s International Thesaurus is the product of more than a century and a half of continual expansion, reorganization, and improvement. Today this book is not only the most time-tested and bestselling thesaurus ever, but, newly revised, it is also the most up-to-date and comprehensive reflection of the English language as it is currently used.
The revolutionary achievement of Dr. Peter Mark Roget’s first edition in 1852 was the development of a brand-new principle: the arrangement of words and phrases according to their meanings. Dr. Roget’s system brings together in one place all the terms associated with a single thought or concept; it allows a wide-ranging survey of language within a book of relatively modest size, without the space-consuming repetitions that so severely limit the scope of thesauruses arranged in a dictionary format with A-to-Z entries. This brilliant organization makes Roget’s International Thesaurus both the most efficient word finder and a cutting-edge aid in stimulating thought, organizing ideas, and writing and speaking more clearly and effectively.
This revised and updated seventh edition features thousands of new words and phrases, including the newest slang words and expressions that color and inform everyday language. At the same time, it retains all the hallmarks that have made Roget’s International Thesaurus the most popular word reference book next to the dictionary.About the Author:

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | More than 325,000 words | The most up-to-date edition of the worlds bestselling thesaurus-the only thesaurus based on Peter Rogets original reference classic of 1852-with more than 325,000 words, including over 2,000 words and phrases newly added since the 2001 edition. | The revolutionary achievement of Dr. Roget was his development of a brand new principle: the grouping of words according to ideas. If the user cannot find something in a reference book, it is often because of the restriction of searching alphabetically by known headwords. Dr. Rogets thesaurus thus reversed the access to allow the user to find a word from another word, a concept or an idea. When in 1852 Roget published the first book ever to realize this concept with thoroughness and precision, he called it a "thesaurus" (from the Greek and Latin, meaning "treasury" or "storehouse"). And thesaurus it has remained to this day.This ultimate reference tool - the bestselling thesaurus ever in all its editions - contains over 325,000 words and phrases, more than two thousand of which are new to this edition, grouped into 1072 numbered categories. Within each category youll find all the parts of speech, frequent cross-references, commonly-used words singled out in boldface, quotes that puts words into context , hundreds of fascinating and idiosyncratic word lists and much more. If youre a writer who needs help organizing a thought or mastering the nuance of expression, the International Thesaurus remains the first source to turn to. This edition updates the 2001 edition, which netted more than 100,000 copies just in its two hardcover formats. As with the previous edition, we will have both a thumb-indexed and non-thumb-indexed format available. | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 1960 gr | 1282 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780061715235
