    Roget's International Thesaurus is the ultimate cure for tip-of-the-tongue-itis. Easy To Use: Unlike alphabetical thesauruses, Roget's International Thesaurus works the same way your brain does. First, you figure out the general category: Are you looking for a word related to values and ideals? Measure and shape? Then, look up the keywords to find the exact entry you're seeking. Plus, thousands of cross-references throughout lead to other helpful categories. Comprehensive: More than 325,000 words and phrases in 1,072 categories compose this new edition of Roget's, including the newest slang words and expressions. In addition, hundreds of supplemental word lists supply the names of things that have no synonyms (wines, weapons, animals, state mottoes, and more). Better Than The Rest: Just look at how a single entry lines up: Roget's International Thesaurus {ADJS}14 wealthy, rich, affluent, affluential, moneyed or monied, in funds or cash, well-to-do, well-to-do in the world, well-off, well-situated, prosperous, comfortable, provided for, well provided for, fat, flush, flush with or of money, abounding in riches, worth a great deal, in clover, frightfully rich, rich as Croesus; independent, independently rich, independently wealthy; luxurious 501.21; opulent 991.7; privileged, born with a silver spoon in one's mouth; higher-income, upper-income, well-paid Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus Wealthy adj syn rich I, affluent, moneyed oofy, opulent con impoverished, penniless, poor ant indigent Random House Webster's College Thesaurus Wealthy adj.
