About this eBook

Preface Great thinker, Terence 190 B.C. 159 B.C. has said, A word to the wise is sufficient . For one word a man is deemed to be wise and for one word he is deemed to be foolish. So Confucius advised We ought to be careful indeed what we say. Because the words are what hold society together in the world. Word rules the world as the word power makes the communication effective. This requires the management of language which needs a rich vocabulary, and the profound source of words is a storehouse or treasury of Synonyms and Antonyms. A Synonym is a word that has a meaning similar to that of another word, whereas an Antonym is a word that has a meaning opposite to that of another word. Remember, a big vocabulary is a grand thing when well understood and resourcefully used with care , as otherwise it will have its own penalties. Hence, this book is designed with much care to meet the requirement of everyone who wants to speak and write more effective and accurate English. In a way it is a Thesaurus which introduces us to every possible sort and condition of a word. To be more precise, it will show you how to use the word to express your ideas most exactly. The salient features of the book are A wide range of Synonyms and Antonyms of the selected keywords is given under different parts of speech i.e. noun, verb, adj., and adv. . It contains nearly 10,000 index-words and phrases idioms used in the text for your effective communication. The meaning of the individual keyword of both synonyms and antonyms and phrases idioms is given in one or more definitions. Specific guidelines as how to use the index are given, and The alphabetical list of keywords of Synonyms with Antonyms is affixed. Thus, it is hoped that this book if gone through earnestly will prove to be useful to a wide class of people writers, speakers, advanced English learners, aspirants of competitive examinations, and others and they will find it handy for solving their problems with speed and accuracy.
vi I am indebted to the publishers and authors of various books, especially the Collins Comprehensive and Concise Dictionary, Oxford Advanced Learner s Dictionary, Cambridge International Dictionary of English and other books, which have been consulted to bring out this book as an authentic record of information, in a distinct manner. In the end, I sincerely thank my dear niece, Priyanka Choudhry, for her assistance in preparing the manuscript. With best wishes, 50, Devi Path Takhte Shahi Road, Jaipur 302004
