Edition:4th

Publisher:Hodder Education

In this book: 'The Chambers Thesaurus is a veritable treasure-trove, including the greatest selection of alternative words and phrases available in an A to Z format. Modern vocabulary sits alongside archaic, and technical terms, formal language and slang are all covered.' This new, fourth edition contains 200 updated entries including the latest words entering the language. They reflect a range of social and technological changes: - From the digital world comes the growth of 'citizen journalism', the menace of the 'cyberbully' and the tricky rules of 'netiquette'. - The green agenda is explored through the evolution of recycling - 'precycle' and 'upcycle' - as well as the inclusion of 'organic' and 'e-waste'. - From the economic recession comes 'agflation', 'NEET', 'cash-strapped' and the increasingly popular 'daycation'. The Word Lover's Gallimaufry, a brand new 48-page section of curious and intriguing word lists, offers practical advice for anyone wanting to write, present or speak creatively. It also reflects the quirkiness and ever-evolving nature of English.Discover a range of fascinating and useful synonyms and expressions for our modern world: Get the words to impress at an interview - 'champion' and 'skillset'. Learn how to avoid annoying cliches - 'ultimately' not 'at the end of the day'. Discover how to sound like a foodie or a fashionista - 'slow food' and 'fast fashion'. Examine the rise of coffee culture - 'dead eye', 'flat white' and 'skinny'. Understand modern phobias like 'email bankruptcy' and 'infomania'. Explore the rise of Blinglish - 'bruv' and 'safe'. An ideal companion to The Chambers Dictionary, all lovers of language and its intricate evolution will find this new edition both compelling and indispensable
