For anyone who has every had to work out of a suitcase on a business trip or with a laptop computer on a plane (or simply finds herself working on the run), reference books pose a problem--a bulky and inconvenient necessity. Now Oxford comes to the rescue with the new Oxford Color Thesaurus, the perfect companion to The Oxford Color Dictionary. Compact and reliable, this handy, color reference (packed with 150,000 synonyms) has been newly redesigned, offering all the key information you'd expect to find in a much larger reference source. With its attractive color layout--offering highly visible color headwords and clear color highlighting of key words and phrases that make finding a synonym particularly easy--the result is a remarkably complete, convenient, authoritative, and easy-to-use portable synonym finder. All the words you want are at your fingertips on one fully cross-referenced A-Z sequence. Example phrases clarify less obvious senses, and there is information on related synonyms and antonyms. Ideal for writing letters, reports, and essays, for crosswords, and simply to increase your word power, this is the most comprehensive color thesaurus of its size. No matter where you find yourself in search of a word--on the train, in a hotel, or even in your own office, The Oxford Color Thesaurus will always be at hand, providing instant access to an immense vocabulary.
