1,050 Words and Expressions You Should Know
SYNOPSIS: So you know what it looks like. You know what it's used for. But for the life of you, you can't remember what it's called. And how do you look it up in a dictionary or thesaurus if you don't know the word for it? That's where this book comes in handy. Say for instance, you know there's a room in a castle which houses candles. You try to look it up, but without knowing the first few letters, you're stuck. With this book, if look up 'Castles' under the architecture section, you would find the word you need--chandlery. From ancient to modern times, there's words here for everyone. And a special addition to this edition is the list of over 1000 words and expressions used by the world's best communicators to help you build your vocabulary. This book is a must for any writer's reference shelf--if only for the sheer enjoyment of it.
