Reviews - What do our customers think?
great reference book  May 11, 2008
This is a great book to have. It lists synonyms, antonyms, analogous, and contrasted words. The vast majority of the book is dedicated to explaining the difference between synonymous terms. The layout and format of the book facilitates searching for words. There is an extremely informative introduction that provides a brief history of synonymy and how the current book came to be what it is.
The dictionary defines a synonym as: meaning "one of two or more words in the English language which have the same or very nearly the same essential meaning." As for antonyms, the definition is: "An antonym is a word so opposed in meaning to another word, its equal in breadth or range of application, that it negates or nullifies every single one of its implications."
Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Synonyms  May 6, 2007
This is the compainion to the Merriam-Webster's Thesaurus that I recently purchased. I believe this reference book is a must have in any private library that gives any writing needs you have that edge that stands you apart from all of the other writers in this world. Again, I thought for sure this was going to be a book that collected dust on the shelf but this is not the case at all !!! I use this book along with my new Dictionary and Thesaurus on a regular basis knowing these reference books give me the confidence to go forward and write anything I want. Knowing I can actually express my thoughts completely with words that can give a clear picture of my thoughts and feelings !!! Without sounding like an idiot who failed third grade spelling three years in a row. Only kidding mom. LOL I am very pleased to have this reference book in my library and I look forward to using this book over and over again in the future !!!
Indispensable  Mar 12, 2007
Indispensable for ESLs. Buy it and you will never regret. See the other reviews for why. In other thesauruses you can not choose a word without knowing the shades of meaning and usage discriminating one from the other. This can be easy for native speakers, it is but terribly difficult for an ESL. I know, because I am one. From the moment I opened its package, I have never used any other thesaurus.
A necessary addition  Mar 2, 2007
A wonderful resource, if only for the pellucid 30 page introduction that schools the reader in the history of synonymy. Unlike thesauruses- which often corral words that may share inessential, non-fundamental aspects of their meaning, the MWDS is a discriminator among synonyms (strictly defined as words that have the same or very nearly the same essential meaning) that differ in their implication, connotation and/or application.
Teacher & Engineering  Apr 17, 2005
Although I have given 5 stars, I would like to see the computer version. If you have not had any dictionary regarding synomyms, I would recommend you to have it.
