Great thesaurus

Posted: November 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

I really love the third edition of “Roget’s 21ST Century Thesaurus,”  with its huge main index and concept sections:

clown [n2] stupid, ignorant person blockhead*, boor, bucolic, buffoon, bumpkin*, chuff, churl, clodhopper*, gawk, hayseed*, hick*, hind, jake, lout, mucker*, oaf, peasant, rube, rustic, swain, yahoo*, yokel; CONCEPTS 412,423

BTW, I love clodhopper. I also want to start thinking of people as jakes and muckers.
