This new guide to French synonyms is the first to be produced specifically for English speaking students of French. Its aim is to enable them to develop, broaden, and enhance their awareness of the complexity and richness of French vocabulary by presenting, in an easily accessible form, information not readily available in traditional dictionaries. It contains a wide variety of material, including informal modes of expression as well as the formal, and practical vocabulary as well as literary language. The tabular layout is designed for maximum ease of reference, with English equivalents and sample French contexts for each French item. There are two indexes enabling the user quickly to locate any given French or English word.
