Lots of respect for Merriam-Webster but a thesaurus is ... "a book of words and their synonyms" according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary in this box set. However this "Thesaurus" reads as a dictionary and very poorly lists related words, LIST RELATED WORDS, WHAT A THESAURUS USUALLY DOES!!!Also this thesaurus is dated 2005. What a dissapointment.wikipedia exp. - "In general usage, a thesaurus is a reference work that lists words grouped together according to similarity of meaning (containing synonyms and sometimes antonyms), in contrast to a dictionary, which provides definitions for words, and generally lists them in alphabetical order. The main purpose of such reference works for users "to find the word, or words, by which [an] idea may be most fitly and aptly expressed" – to quote Peter Mark Roget, architect of the best known thesaurus in the English language."
