The Oxford Learner's Thesaurus helps you understand the differences between familiar words such as "easy" and "simple", while learning words you may not know such as "painless" and "plain sailing". Each entry has a group of 3-10 synonyms, and each synonym is clearly explained in terms of meaning, grammar and register. Example sentences show how each synonym is used, while notes highlight and explain synonyms that are particularly close in meaning or easily confused.
