Description

The New Oxford Thesaurus of English is a completely new top-of-the-range thesaurus offering more alternative and opposite words than any of its competitors. The synonyms are arranged in order of ?relevance? to the look-up word, starting with an individually tagged core synonym, and followed by labelled groups with limited currency, such as informal, regional, and technical terms. NOTE also contains a corpus-based example for the vast majority of senses ? a total of nearly 38,000.
It contains 628,000 alternative words, including 573,000 synonyms, the rest being antonyms, related terms, combining forms, and hyponyms, and is available in SGML.
