This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
Geert Booij's popular textbook on the internal structure of words has been revised and updated. It includes a new chapter on the field's most notorious problem: the status of the word. It also has a full glossary of terms. The book covers every aspect of theory and the practical analysis of words and is the only introductory text to explore the role of morphology in processes of linguistic change and in the operations in the mind.
