DetailsA newly jacketed, eminently useful thesaurus for students in grades 7-10, providing burgeoning writers with 70,000 synonyms shown in contexts students can relate to.
The American Heritage® Student Thesaurus is especially designed to improve the reading and writing skills of students in middle school and early high school. The book offers 6,000 main entries and over 70,000 synonyms—more than any other thesaurus at this level—as well as a table explaining the parts of speech. Each main entry includes a clear sample sentence showing typical usage. Synonyms are listed in the order of how well they fit the meaning illustrated in the sample sentence, encouraging students to think about word choice as an active process rather than a rote procedure. Word Group features for words with no actual synonyms (such as boat or hat) provide conceptually related terms (such as ship or cap). Additionally, many entries contain lists of antonyms to help build vocabulary. This book has been updated with a new jacket to match the line look for The American Heritage® Student Dictionary.
