Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869), of Huguenot stock, trained as a physician in Edinburgh and London, yet he was increasingly drawn to the sciences, corresponding with Erasmus Darwin, Thomas Beddoes and Humphry Davy. He practised medicine (free of charge) in London at the Northern Dispensary, which he co-founded, and lectured on physiology and medical topics. His Bridgewater Treatise, on animal and vegetable physiology, is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. Roget is remembered today for the present work, first published in 1852 following his retirement from professional duties. As the preface makes clear, he had contemplated such a work for nearly fifty years. It supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged ... according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests.… (més)

Had this Book Club Associates' edition forwarded to me soon after its publication in 1973 when I was living in Scandinavia, short on Markka & pretending to be a budding author. It was an invaluable tool - to find that ultimate keyword your mind has let slip - and has continued to be every year since then although my oeuvre remains perilously slim!
A Thesaurus's role is to complement, not replace the inestimable Dictionary: as R.A. Dutch states in the preface (1962), "It furnishes no labels for 'speech level', for what is scholarly, literary or vulgar, or archaic and obsolete" (and certainly this Edition along with me is bordering on that last vestige of practical usefulness that was my ambition and is now for youthful aspiring writers).

Sorry, I just don't get it, understand it, grasp it, make the connection, dig it, comprehend it.

The reason each word exists is that it is its own thing. By definition the thesaurus is telling you to do something wrong: to replace a word with something that isn't quite right.

I'm not going to say any more, but I DEMAND that you go here and watch/listen to The Thesaurus Song:

It's brilliant, wonderful, fantastic, the best, fabulous....you get the idea. ( )

Whenever I'm short of something to read, which is often, I end up back inside Roget's Thesaurus. ( )
