The Oxford Learner's Thesaurus enables students to understand the differences between similar words in written and spoken English. How? Well, each entry has a group of 3-10 near synonyms. Each synonym in the group is clearly explained in terms of meaning, grammar, and register plus an example sentence showing how it is used. There are even notes which highlight and explain synonyms that are particularlyclose in meaning or easily confused, to help students make the right choice. For example, it will help students understand the differences between familiar words such as easy and simple whilelearning words they may not know such as effortless, painless, and plain sailing. All in all the Oxford Learner's Thesaurus helps students find the right words so they can say exactly what they mean and makes their writing worth reading because they have a richer vocabulary to draw on.
