The Cute Thesaurus

The Cute Thesaurus

Author: Ethan Jenkins Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/02/2019

Let's be clear: author Ethan Jenkins isn't campaigning for the total eradication of the word cute. He just hopes to provide readers with some equally cute alternatives. In a slight deviation to the format of Roget's Thesaurus (the synonymic authority since 1851), this book is ablaze with illustrations of unicorns, rainbows and anything pink. If only there was some short, punchy and universal word to describe this particular style of design... Maybe winsome or darling? Dainty or precious? Time to open up The Cute Thesaurus. The word cute - a shortened form of acute , meaning shrewd or clever - first appeared in the English language in 1731. Near-300 years ago, it was a far cry from the etymological chameleon we know today. Now cute is blurted out in so many contexts, its impact has become forever diluted. On any given day, one might find themselves saying: this baby is so cuuute I simply cannot! , I think that bartenders kind of cute or don't play cute with me. If you're guilty of using any (or all) of these regularly, this book will help to claim back your vocabulary. If it's a friend or family member who needs an articulation intervention, let this essential reading be the first step on their road to recovery.

Vintage 1911 Edition of Roget's Thesaurus

Vintage 1911 Edition of Roget's Thesaurus

Author: Peter Mark Roget Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

1911 edition of the classic reference book.According to Wikipedia: "e;Roget's Thesaurus is a widely used English language thesaurus, created by Dr. Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869) in 1805 and released to the public on 29 April 1852. The original edition had 15,000 words, and each new edition has been larger... Roget's Thesaurus is composed of six primary classes. Each class is composed of multiple divisions and then sections. This may be conceptualized as a tree containing over a thousand branches for individual "e;meaning clusters"e; or semantically linked words. These words are not exactly synonyms, but can be viewed as colours or connotations of a meaning or as a spectrum of a concept. One of the most general words is chosen to typify the spectrum as its headword, which labels the whole group. Roget's schema of classes and their subdivisions is based on the philosophical work of Leibniz (see Leibniz-Symbolic thought), itself following a long tradition of epistemological work starting with Aristotle. Some of Aristotle's Categories are included in Roget's first class "e;abstract relations"e;.
