The learning of English is complicated by the fact that there are many sets of words like the above: in each set the words are closely related in meaning while they may be very different in form. This book will help you to learn the basic elements of common words and to recognize the connections and networks within the vocabulary.
The detail of the content can be compared with the information you find in dictionaries and thesauruses, but the presentation is different from that of other books. It is designed to make certain things clear very quickly.
The author is a retired university lecturer.
