Arranged in an easy-to-use A-Z form, THE NEW PENGUIN CONCISE THESAURUS offers a vast selection of synonyms for a whole host of words, ranging from the everyday to the comparatively esoteric and from standard vocabulary to contemporary slang and jargon ('e-tailer', 'chill out'). Each entry is simplicity itself to follow, and where a particular word has several different senses, these are clearly indicated and explained. A perfect companion to THE NEW PENGUIN CONCISE ENGLISH DICTIONARY.
