With over twenty percent more material, a must for any lover of distinctive words.

This entertaining and informative reference features sophisticated and surprising alternatives to common words together with no-fail guides to usage. Avoiding traditional thesauruses’ mundane synonym choices, Peter E. Meltzer puts each word―whether it’s protrepic, apostrophize, iracund, or emulous―in context by using examples from a broad range of contemporary books, periodicals, and newspapers. His new introduction makes the case for why we should widen our vocabulary and use the one right word. This groundbreaking thesaurus remains a unique venture, one that enriches your writing while helping you find the perfect word.

Review:

“Delves into the mostly untapped reservoir of the English lexicon, offering readers more than top-of-mind word choices.”
- Dow Jones Newsletter

“A million dollars’ worth of fifty-cent words.”
- Erin McKean, editor, Verbatim

“This book will lend hours of pleasure―as well as help you preserve the highest layers of the English vocabulary.”
- John McWhorter, author of The Language Hoax
