The Oxford Minireference Dictionary & Thesaurus, now with an attractive new cover, is clearer, more accurate, and easier to use than any other combined dictionary/thesaurus reference. Where other combined volumes print a separate dictionary and thesaurus text across the same page (for an approximate match), The Oxford Minireference Dictionary and Thesaurus is the only mini to combine both dictionary and thesaurus features within individual entries. Each set of synonyms is keyed to a particular dictionary sense and definition for greater accuracy and ease of use, and the unique integrated entries allow for quick and easy one-stop reference. With 30,000 dictionary entries and a massive 115,000 synonyms, this is the most useful and helpful minidictionary and thesaurus combination available.
