Abstract:
The ultimate word and idea resource for anyone who is curious about language or wants to write creatively. Like a fantastic restaurant menu with hundreds of vocabulary categories and thousands of tempting choices. More than a dictionary, the Random House Word Menu arranges words in a logical structure - with nearly 800 divisions and 75,000 entries. More than a thesaurus, it also provides definitions - describing words clearly and concisely. And it's fully indexed to help. You find the words you need. Seven major sections - Nature, Science and Technology, Domestic Life, Institutions, Arts and Leisure, Language, and The Human Condition - cover an encyclopedic range of subjects. This organizational focus enables the reader to distinguish and compare similar or related words in ways that are impossible in most alphabetical reference works. Take a quick course in the terminology of an unfamiliar field. Discover different ways of saying the. Same thing. Correctly employ technical terms and jargon. Match a known meaning to an unknown word. The Random House Word Menu is an invaluable source of information for browsers, students and teachers, writers and editors, translators, secretaries, and all business people and professionals.
