To the text of the synonyms is appended a set of Questions and Examples to adapt the work for use as a text-book.

There are few who can study such a work without finding occasion to correct some errors into which they have unconsciously fallen, and without coming to a new delight in the use of language from a fuller knowledge of its resources and a clearer sense
