We then use these findings to organize the entries in the thesaurus, listing synonyms in order of frequency of use, so that the first choice you see is probably the one you need, and preventing you from inadvertently picking a word that is not in common use. In addition, virtually every sense includes a sample sentence drawn from the Corpus, revealing how the words are used in actual speech. And finally, the thesaurus now boasts a completely new page layout, with a more open and accessible design, with an emphasis on readability. Portable, affordable, reliable, this revolutionary new resource stands on the shoulders of the colossal Oxford English Corpus, providing readers with the clearest vision of American English as it exists today.
