Whether you compose novels, essays, speeches, diary entries, or letters, you'll want to keep this unique thesaurus close to your writing desk! Loaded with terms deemed particularly "expressive, nuanced, and creative,"Roget's Thesaurus of Words for Writers is organized by meaning, presenting a list of adjective, nouns, and/or verbs related to a particular idea (as well as relevant antonyms). For instance, to describe a "happy" person, you might call him a "roisterer" or remark on her "jocose" nature. Instead of "talking," someone might "bloviate" or "expatiate." Or you might describe a smell as "odoriferous" or "putrescent" instead of "bad." More than 2,000 "emotive, evocative, descriptive" terms are featured, each of which includes a definition, pronunciation guide, and an example sentence. What an indispensable reference for scribes of all stripes! (AG)
