Reviews - What do customers think about Merriam Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus?
A Good Book. No, make that a Very Good Book. May 13, 2008
This is a good book. It has good words that mean other good words, and that is very good. Sometimes, it can help you know good meanings of other words, like a good definition, but that is not what this good book is for.
If you wanted to know a different good word for a describing word, you can look up your word, and it will tell you a different good word for your good word. These describing words could be good ones, like 'hard' or 'wet' or 'swollen' and it will give you other good words like 'stiff' or 'dripping' or 'engorged'. This helps me write good letters to my favorite good magazines and different good places on the internets.
Now I never use the same good word over again if I know a different good word.
In conclusion, this book is very good. In fact, I'd say it is better than good -- it's Very Good!!
A good investment Aug 8, 2007
This thesaurus is very helpful. You will be able to find the word you're looking for about 8-9 times out of 10, which is not bad at all. I am an English major and therefore use my thesaurus quite often and I give it a thumbs up. The price is reasonable. The look is professional. It's a great buy!
This was a gift for someone that is a senior in highschool.They loved it and it will take them through adulthood.
Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus May 6, 2007
I purchased this reference book at the same time I purchased Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary thinking these books would compliment each other and I was absolutely correct !!! I thought this would be a reference book that would collect dust on the bookshelf but that isn't the case. I have used this reference book more than I thought I would and it has come in handy many times now. You can never have enough reference books in your own private library and this is definitely a book that can only inhance your reference book section of your library. I am very pleased with this purchase and the only thing I regret is not purchasing this book much sooner !!!
