Oxford Learner's Thesaurus


A learner’s thesaurus of over 15,000 words and expressions from written and spoken British and American English. The learner’s thesaurus helps students distinguish between similar words and use them correctly. The 2,000 entries: – include between three and ten near synonyms, showing the differences between them in terms of meaning, grammar, register, collocations, and frequency; – help students understand the differences between familiar words, such as easy and simple, while learning expressions they may not know, such as effortless, painless, and smooth sailing; – provide over 4,000 notes to enable students to distinguish between very close synonyms, choose the best word for the context, and use it correctly; and – include over 2,000 opposites.
