Klappentext

Excerpt from Roget's Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases Classified and Arranged So as to Facilitate the Expression of Ideas and Assist in Literary Composition There is perhaps no more striking testimony to the usefulness of Roget's The saurus (on which this work is based) than the many editions which have been period ically demanded. This very popularity lays an added responsibility upon the pub lishers, and makes the editor's task one of no slight undertaking. A treasury of words and ideas must keep pace with the growth of knowledge and language or lose its place in the forerank of indispensable volumes. To enhance the value of the book and bring it abreast of modern culture and requirements was the aim of the present editor. The original plan of the work has been followed in the main, for that which has stood the test of over half a century, and made the name of Roget of almost classic worth, is not one to be lightly abandoned. But while the labors of the author have been embodied in their entirety, so many new features have been introduced and the time-honored structure has been so much enlarged and modernized that this edition may not unreasonably claim to be a new work, and not a revision in the usual significance of the term. A comparison of the new Index with the old will afford some idea of the extended scope of the present work.
