about this book

The Random House Word Menu is a revolutionary reference that organizes language by subject matter, the way we understand and use it. More than a dictionary, the WORD MENU is also

A Reverse Dictionary, which arranges words in logical, categorized structures--if you know the meaning or you know a related word, you can find the word you need
A Treasury of Glossaries, with nearly 800 divisions and more than 75,000 entries
An Almanac, with entries concerning world holidays, sports terms, science, and more
A Thesaurus that helps you learn the terminology of an unfamiliar field, technical terms and jargon, and different ways of saying the same thing
