This revised edition of Barron's popular Pocket Dictionary & Thesaurus packs more than 40,000 words with their definitions and synonyms into a handy pocket-sized book. It features approximately 100,000 synonyms in total.

The two-in-one word guide is small enough to fit it into a backpack, carry to class, and use as a reliable reference when writing essays and term papers. The top part of each page is a standard pocket dictionary and the bottom part of the page is in a thesaurus format.

Headwords in both sections are printed in color. Each dictionary headword is followed by its part of speech and definition. Every thesaurus headword—in addition to its list of synonyms—comes with an example sentence that uses the word in its standard context.

Corresponding dictionary and thesaurus entries are always cited on the same page for fast, easy reference.
