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."

For the first time in the history of research both in Spanish and German linguistics, this book undertakes a comparative study of the lexical structures commonly understood as ‘word families’ and the theoretical and methodological bases of their analysis. Using the word families derived from dec(ir) and sag(en) as a main reference point, the study discusses different theoretical approaches and positions.
