The Oxford Primary Thesaurus is the perfect thesaurus for confident young writers. It lists words in alphabetical order and gives thousands of synonyms, antonyms, and special topic words to encourage pupils to improve their writing. The contemporary new design with headwords picked out in colour and alphabet tabs on every page make navigation very easy. Tinted colour panels with extra information on overused words, topic words, and writing tips make finding and new or alternative words quick and simple. They also help to choose words for particular effects and for formal, informal, or subject-specific contexts. The Oxford Primary Thesaurus is an invaluable reference tool for pupils to reflect independently and critically on their own writing and edit and improve it. It is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a language database of millions of words of writing for children. It is also the ideal companion to the Oxford Primary Dictionary.
