Just What Was Needed May 22 2011
By Kevin Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased this for an inmate - they could only have softcover books and he wanted a combination dictionary and thesaurus. He received it and said it was perfect for hiw human spell-check to go along with his pen and paper wordprocessor.

Good, but lacks word origins Aug. 17 2010
By SENESCHAL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I ended up returning this dictionary/thesaurus because I realized it doesn't have the word origin in the definition. Although this might not be a problem for many people, it's something I absolutely require in a good dictionary. So if you need this feature, don't buy this one. Other than that flaw, it's okay.

concise and useful Oct. 3 2008
By Ellen Vinitsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This style dictionary/thesaurus offers opportunity to learn new words, expand one's vocabulary, and introduces us to new ways of further expressing ideas and thoughts with a greater array of words. It is easy and quick to use and small enough to carry. The type is small but still readable.
