Anyone who wants to write clear and accurate English, using the correct word in a particular context, will find this book helpful, and a useful companion to the Easier English Basic Dictionary.
Groups of similar words are arranged alphabetically under the main word for the particular meaning being illustrated, so words meaning ‘big’ are given at big.

It is designed for any student of English who wants to improve their vocabulary, especially anyone working towards elementary or pre-intermediate learners' exams such as the Preliminary English Test (PET) or the Key English Test (KET). Synonyms and related words are listed for each entry to show alternative meanings and expressions.
