The Concise Roget's International Thesaurus: Revised and Updated Sixth Edition
Barbara Ann Kipfer
0060094796
June 2003
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Description
An abridged edition of the world's bestselling original thesaurus. This completely revised and updated edition contains over 230,000 words, nearly three thousand of which are newly added. The revolutionary achievement of Dr Roget was his development of a brand new principle: the grouping of words according to ideas. If the user cannot find something in a reference book, it is often because of the restriction of searching alphabetically by 'known' headwords. Dr Roget's thesaurus reversed the access to allow the user to find a word from another word, a concept or an idea. This ultimate reference tool - the best-selling thesaurus ever in all its editions - contains over 230,000 words and phrases, nearly 3000 of which are new to this edition, grouped into 1072 numbered categories. Within each category you'll find all the...

Language to Cover a Page: The Early Writings of Vito Acconci
Vito Acconci
0262012243
March 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Acconci has turned out to be one of the most stylistically diverse artists to come out of the 1960s conceptual movement, but his preoccupation with language has been a constant. As poet and scholar Dworkin's introduction notes, Acconci holds an Iowa Writer's Workshop M.F.A., and, with Bernadette Mayer in the late '60s, he edited the highly influential mimeographed journal 0 to 9. The pieces in this book, very few of which have been previously published and none of which has ever had wide distribution, do everything from reproducing the initial letter of every line of a page of Roget's Thesaurus to recounting his body's movements moment by moment—and then recounting the recounting. The works do what they're intended to do: represent artistic decision with an absolute minimum of content. They are often...
