I've often said I wanted a way to reference entire phrases, not just individual words. Then, one day, there it was. A handy addition to your standard dictionaries and thesauri. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0898799996, Hardcover)

When writers need a synonym for a word, they look in a thesaurus. But what if they need a synonym for a phrase, such as "flower arrangement" or "budget deficit" or "sports arena" or "crowning achievement"? Well, now there's a reference that gives them that information as well!

This one-of-a-kind reference offers 10,000 multi-word entries and multi-word synonyms to help writers and students avoid repetitions and cliches and make their writing more precise. It can also be used for Internet searches, in which a key phrase may not pull all the desired information. Synonymous phrases help the searcher find more information with less effort.

* Includes more than 10,000 multi-word entries organized alphabetically in a traditional thesaurus format
* Many entries also feature lists of examples
