Thesaurus. Just as no English dictionary would b e complete which did not em body these v irile specimens of our lang uage., so is their inclusion all the more in. A thesaurus can also help in solving crossV word puzzles and with many other word games. The Oxford Thesaurus of English, first published in and now. The Project Gutenberg eBook, Roget's Thesaurus of English Words and. Phrases , by alphabetically-listed synonym dictionary) is composed of three parts.
Selection of headwords Two criteria have been employed: first, headwords have been selected because of their frequency in the language, on the assumption that synonyms are more likely to be sought for the words that are most used; second, some headwords of lower frequency have been included because it would otherwise be impossible to find a suitable place to group together what are perceived as useful sets of synonyms with their attendant illustrative sentences.
Obvious listings have been omitted on the grounds that users of the Thesaurus can easily find synonyms for, say, abdication by making nouns of the verbs listed under abdicate. This deliberate attempt to avoid duplication is mitigated in the case of very common words.
For the convenience of the user, both shy and bashful are main entries, as are method, manner, and mode, which, though much the same in some respects, differ in detail and application. In this book, however, mitigate is a main entry but not mitigation, mistake and mistaken are main entries but not mistakenly, etc.
Where it is determined that such derivations are neither automatic nor semantically obvious, separate listings have been provided.
Illustrative sentences On the principle that a word is known by the company it keeps, one or more sentences showing the main entry word in context are provided for each sense discrimination. These have been carefully selected to demonstrate the use of the main entry in a context likely to be encountered in familiar written or spoken ordinary English. See also 7, below. Synonym lists Each main entry is followed by one or more sense groupings, each illustrated by one or more sentences.
An effort has been made to group the synonyms semantically as well as syntactically and idiomatically: that is, each synonym listed within a given set should prove to be more or less substitutable for the main entry in the illustrative sentence. In some instances, idiomatic congruity may, unavoidably, become strained; where it is felt to be stretched too far--though still properly listed among its accompanying synonyms--a semicolon has been inserted to separate sub-groups of synonyms, and, in many cases, additional illustrative sentences have been provided.
Such sub-groupings have been confined largely to distinctions between literal uses and figures of speech, between transitive and intransitive verbs, and between synonyms that differ in more subtle aspectual characteristics of meaning or syntax. Not all senses of all words are covered for either or both of the following reasons: the sense, though it exists, is relatively rare in ordinary discourse and writing; there are no reasonable synonyms for it. Thus, this sense of mercy, an affecting or moving of the mind in any way; a mental state brought about by any influence; an emotion or feeling: Mercy is an affection of the mind.
The same can be said for the sense, a bodily state due to any influence and for other senses listed in the largest dictionaries but rarely encountered except in literary contexts.
Even in such contexts it would be unusual to need a synonym for this word and others like it. Cross references There are very few cross references between main listings in the Thesaurus.
Where such cross references do occur, they are simple and straightforward: superior adj A number of cross references occur within entries, between variant forms of an expression. At the entry for take, for example, as one can say either take or take it in the sense of 'understand' etc.
I take it from your expression that you've had bad news. In a few entries, the form 'See also' is used. Labels a. All words and phrases that are recognized as being typical of a particular variety of English, whether geographical or stylistic, are labelled. It might at first seem that a large number of colloquial, slang, and taboo words have been included.
The labels used are those commonly encountered in ordinary dictionaries: Colloq Colloquial; informal; used in everyday conversation and writing, especially in the popular press and in dramatic dialogue; sometimes avoided where more formal language is felt to be appropriate, as in business correspondence, scholarly works, technical reports, documents, etc.
Slang Belonging to the most informal register and characteristic of spoken English; often originating in the cult language of a particular socio-cultural group.
Not sufficiently elevated to be used in most writing aside from dialogue , although often found in the popular press and frequently heard on popular radio and television programmes. Taboo Not used in polite society, usually because of the risk of offending sexual, religious, or cultural sensibilities; occasionally encountered on late-night television and radio; often occurring in graffiti and in dialogue in novels, plays, and films.
Archaic Describing an obsolete word or phrase like tickety-boo, lounge lizard that is used deliberately to invoke the feeling of a bygone time.
Old-fashioned Used of a synonym like comfit that is no longer current but might occasionally be encountered among older speakers and in older writing. English turn. E ekaaruti ferry. I igaji cook. English 3 esugangituq infinity. G gutinga comb. K kaajuuq buzzard.
English illuq cousin. L luktaaq doctor. M majuraqtuq climbing. English kalliq lightning. N naalauti radio.

The idiom is not labelled because it is assumed that the user has looked it up to find a substitute for it, hence needs no information about it other than a listing of its alternatives which are labelled, when appropriate and an illustrative example.
For the selection of the words the top 50 lists of the most "common words in English" provided by the makers of the Oxford English Dictionary were a preferred inspiration - mostly verbs and adjectives, only rarely nouns and adverbs. Cross references There are very few cross references between main listings in the Thesaurus.
Synonyms are then given for the English translations for all relevant parts of speech even in cases where the Vietnamese subject word has a unique part of speech.
