Description

It would take years of reading to learn the vocabulary succinctly provided in Word Power. The dictionary contains everything from slang (cool, zulued) to scholarship (soliloquy, archaic smile), to science (azimuth), with some added hokum (Montezuma's revenge). Each entry is defined, given a pronunciation, and used in four sample sentences. Where possible, synonyms, antonyms, and etymology are provided, as well. With its painstaking selection and pithy examples, Word Power is suitable for students, professionals, and anyone interested in the storied and variegated English language.
