The Philomath's Thesaurus

Unlike typical thesauri that merely remind one of words they already know but can't quite remember, this advanced reference offers more erudite, esoteric synonyms. Instead of just offering “converse” as a synonym for “chat,” this intellectual thesaurus provides “confabulate” as a more interesting alternative. Thesaurus entries are followed by a rarely used - or understood - synonym and an example sentence drawn from periodicals such as The Financial Times and The New Republic. Withal, the reference has entries followed by a parenthetical clarifier that adds context, and then offers a synonym, providing more precise definitions and demonstrating nuance. Other entries include synonyms based on foreign languages (the Yiddish “tachlis” for “essence”), synonyms that distinguish between figurative and literal usage, and entries that present different connotations. 9 1/4" L x 7" W x 1 3/4" D.
