| The Fitzhenry &
Whiteside Canadian Thesaurus gives you the word you want, where and when
you want it.
Revised and updated to capture new words and terminology related to changes in science, nature, technology, communications and the internet, music, food and much much more-more encyclopedic lists! More commonly misused identifiers! And more Canadian words!
The Canadian Thesaurus is the first Canadian reference book of its kind, built not from an existing database, but totally from scratch over a period of close to 12 years.
At more than 1,100 pages, the book contains over 30,000 individual entries. It supplies the reader with more than 400,000 synonyms, plus some 70,000 antonyms and more shades of meaning than any of its competitors.
Features of the Revised and Updated Edition include:
" ... a sublime, lovely and first class thing to build a truly Canadian thesaurus from scratch that was determinedly and identifiably Canadian." The Globe and Mail
" ... it is a great achievement, a new volume that celebrates our language ... " The Calgary Herald
