This easy-to-use guide helps readers improve their wordpower and is full of practical advice on how to effectively manage dictionaries, thesauri, and other language reference books. Useful tips for tackling spelling and the meaning of difficult words are included, along with a comprehensive reference section that highlights easily confused words, foreign terms, and word formation. Topic-based noun lists, covering architecture, the human body, countries, music, mathematics, and language help expand vocabulary, and a lexicon of "hard" words provides needed assistance with the most problematic terms. Overall, this book allows readers to develop a better understanding as well as to finesse their use of the English language.
Janet Whitcut is an experienced compiler of dictionaries and writer on language.
