Here at last is a one-stop word-reference book for language lovers. Anyone who has scoured a regular dictionary or thesaurus in search of an elusive word expressing a specific meaning will appreciate this versatile reference.
This dictionary, split into three parts, presents the prefixes, suffixes, combining forms and roots that fit together to form words in English. Part I, an alphabetical listing of word parts with definitions, allows a reader to quickly locate the meaning of a known word part. Part II, the Finder, allows a user to start with a meaning or concept and then find word parts that express that meaning. Part III, also a reverse dictionary, organizes the word parts under broad headings: where a reader might consult Part II for word parts relating to Skull, Part III gives a complete listing of word parts pertaining to The Body.
