Edited by Oxford's Canadian lexicography department, this is Oxford University Press's first Canadian thesaurus. With 300,000 synonyms and 8,000 opposites, this easy-to-use reference is ideal for all kinds of writing needs-- for study, at home, or in the office.

The Paperback Oxford Canadian Thesaurus provides the most useful alternative word first, with the words that are closest in meaning to the entry work given in capitals. Thousands of example sentences show words used in context, making it easier to make the right choice every time. Alternative and opposite words are clearly labelled if they are informal, dialect, literary, or technical. In addition, over 800 word family boxes offer lists of related words on a diverse range of topics including Native Languages of Canada, Doughnuts and Deep-fried sweets, Breeds of Dog, Dinosaurs, Sewing Terms and even Hockey Terms.

With over 635 uniquely Canadian words and meanings, the Paperback Oxford Canadian Thesaurus will be an invaluable reference for all Canadians.
