A Thesaurus of Old English is conceptually arranged, and presents the vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon England within ordered categories. This allows the user to approach the materials of the Thesaurus by subject rather than through an alphabetic index as is the case for many thesauri. The provision of brief indications of meaning at all levels of this scheme allows word-senses to follow on from ideas explained, so that this thesaurus incorporates information about word meaning and could be described as an inside-out dictionary, with meanings first and then words. In addition to providing hitherto unavailable information for linguists, historians of language, authors, students of English, and textual scholars, A Thesaurus of Old English is a rich resource for investigating social and cultural history, showing the development of concepts through the words that refer to them. The Thesaurus can be consulted online at the University of Glasgow website.

A superb resource for writers that packs an extraordinary amount of information in a convenient, affordable paperback format, this second edition of the Pocket Oxford American Thesaurus features a new text with more than 15,000 main entries and more than 350,000 synonyms and antonyms, with sample sentences or phrases for virtually every sense. The new edition makes it easy to find the perfect word, with Oxford's unique arrangement of core senses and subsenses. We draw on the latest evidence from the Oxford English Corpus--a vast database of more than two billion words--to uncover the most common and most important meanings of words and phrases in contemporary American English. We then use these findings to organize the entries in the thesaurus, listing synonyms in order of frequency of use, so that the first choice you see is probably the one you need, and preventing you from inadvertently picking a word that is not in common use. In addition, virtually every sense includes a sample sentence drawn from the Corpus, revealing how the words are used in actual speech. And finally, the thesaurus now boasts a completely new page layout, with a more open and accessible design, with an emphasis on readability. Portable, affordable, reliable, this revolutionary new resource stands on the shoulders of the colossal Oxford English Corpus, providing readers with the clearest vision of American English as it exists today. No other thesaurus on the market has anything like this authority behind it. It is the first choice for writers on the go and for anyone who wants to select words accurately and with confidence.
