Abstract:

Designed for those who have already developed a basic competence in Arabic,
this comprehensive synonyms guide aims to broaden and improve the learner's
vocabulary by helping them find the right word for the right context.
Presenting words of related meaning together, it provides a range of
options which will help avoid repetition and improve style, enabling
students to develop a deeper awareness of the subtle differences in meaning
and usage of different words. Each entry is illustrated with authentic
examples of the synonyms in use, showing their unique meanings and
grammatical properties, and enabling students to quickly recognize them in
real-life contexts. The book is complete with two clear indexes, in English
and Arabic, enabling the reader to instantly and easily locate any word. An
essential reference for college and undergraduate students, their teachers,
and other language professionals seeking a clear, user-friendly guide to
Arabic vocabulary and its usage.
