Metaphors improve speech and writing by conveying shades of meaning more succinctly than ordinary phrases. The modern English language is remarkably full of metaphors. This fascinating book discusses metaphors in some detail. An entertaining introduction leads into a dictionary of metaphors, a thematic section and a thesaurus. It contains over 17,000 alphabetical entries listing more than 4,000 commonly found metaphors and setting out their meanings in an easy to read style. This handy word-book with its highly original format will appeal to all lovers of language, as well as to writers, editors, publishers, students, migrants and those engaged in public speaking. It is an essential reference for libraries and educational institutions. The book also provides raw material for many specialist applications, including party games, advertising copy, English as a second language and crossword puzzles. Here is a dictionary and thesaurus of metaphors which is both a practical guide to meaning and a stimulus to enquiry. Only a person in love with words could have compiled it Dame Leonie Kramer
