This new guide to French synonyms is the first to be produced specifically for English-speaking students of French. Its aim is to enable them to develop, broaden and enhance their awareness of the complexity and richness of French vocabulary by presenting in an easily accessible form information not readily available in traditional dictionaries. It contains a wide variety of material, both formal and informal, literary and practical. The tabular layout is designed for maximum ease of reference, with sample contexts and English equivalents for each French item. There are two indexes of French and English words.
