Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases

By Peter Mark Roget

This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'.

Title: Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics, 2nd edition
Edited By: Keith Brown

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Encyclopedia of Language
and Linguistics 2nd Edition (ELL2), 14 volumes published in print this
month and online in early 2006. For more information, visit

ELL2 is aimed at a wide readership. Undergraduates will find it a useful
source of material, as will teachers and lecturers. It will also be
important at the postgraduate level for summarizing a broad range of
theoretical topics, for practical advice on research techniques and for
insights into new ways of approaching research problems. We also anticipate
that the wide coverage of ELL2 will make it an invaluable and practical
source of information for professionals at all levels and in a variety of
disciplines as well as for the general reader.

We predict that ELL2 will become the linguist's benchmark reference work
for the 21st century.
