Word Count - Writers Talk About Writing

A Grave Case of Synonym-itis
January 30, 2013
By James Harbeck

Some writers go to great lengths to find synonyms for things or acts that they have to refer to repeatedly in a story. They seem to have the idea that this adds flavor and depth and style to their writing. Actually, it can add a thick layer of B.S. and to demonstrate quite clearly why supposed synonyms are not necessarily fungible.

Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus - OAWT

Swiss Army Knife for Writers
by Maeve Maddox
...
Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus. 2nd edition. Compiled by Chrstine A. Lindberg.

The title says it all. It’s a writer’s tool that, for practical versatility, compares to a camper’s Swiss Army Knife.

The main section contains about a thousand pages of entries. Unlike Roget, the OAWT gives the word in context before offering synonyms.

...
It is a great alternative to Roget’s Thesaurus because it is easier to use and works just as well if not a bit better. It is organized in a dictionary style and provides many synonyms listed in logical order. When appropriate, distinctions are made between formal and informal usages.

Book review: Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus

("OAWT" is actually an Americanization of the "Canadian Oxford Thesaurus", which was a Canadianization of the UK Desk Thesaurus of some vintage. But Christine Lindberg’s work on OAWT has indeed made it a preeminently US American thesaurus).

Synonym Toast
By Michael Dirda

Some years back, Oxford University Press decided to bring out a new thesaurus. The Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus would be alphabetical (rather than thematic, as Roget’s original had been), and it would include tables and inserts detailing the graded differences in connotation among groups of synonyms. Thus, on page 427 of the second edition, published in 2008, one finds a little box explaining the nuances distinguishing such similar words as “honor, deference, homage, obeisance” and “reverence.”

Another Word For Annoyed
by Josh Hanagarne
on May 24, 2011

Today’s post, another word for annoyed, is brought to you by a book that I never thought I would review: the thesaurus. Specifically, the Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus.

A thesaurus is a book that helps you look up a word, and then find words that are similar in meaning. Not too thrilling, right? But if you’ve ever heard anyone complaining that a writer is using rusty, cliched language, those writers might benefit from a book like this.
