This new guide to German synonyms is the first to be produced specifically for English speaking students of German. Its aim is to enable them to develop, broaden, and enhance their awareness of the complexity and richness of German vocabulary by presenting, in an easily accessible form, information not readily available in traditional dictionaries. It contains a wide variety of material, including informal modes of expression as well as the formal, and practical vocabulary as well as literary language. The tabular layout is designed for maximum ease of reference, with English equivalents and sample German contexts for each German item. There are two indexes enabling the user quickly to locate any given German or English word.
