內容簡介

如何讓文章更生動?
暢銷歐美二十載的文學辭典增訂版告訴你!

  《The Describer’s Dictionary》是一部特色鮮明的實用工具書,作者透過特別設計的編排格式幫助使用者快速找到最適切的字彙、片語,出版二十年來成為眾多文字工作者與作家的必備案頭書,具有無可動搖的專業性與權威性。增訂新版除了新添數百個字彙與同義詞,更擴大了選詞應用範圍,包括「身體狀態與症狀」、「氣質與行為」、「房間與室內空間」、「太陽系」等。

  例如,當我們想找描述「大聲」或「刺耳」的感官印象詞語時,便能在書中查到「grating」(刺耳、不舒服的)、「harsh」(粗糙、刺耳的)、「piercing」(尖銳、大聲的)等六種形容詞來視情況應用。每個單元結束前,作者還會從麥可‧路易士、莎娣.史密斯、與卡勒德‧胡賽尼等多位知名作家的著作中摘引出合適的片段,超過四百條從圖書、期刊與數位媒體新增的例句,讓辭彙得以在現實生活的語言中舒展自我,對學習者而言是很寶貴的借鏡。(文/ 博客來編譯)

  The unmatched guide—and perfect gift—for stymied scribes and working wordsmiths everywhere, now expanded and updated.

  A singular and indispensable reference tool, The Describer's Dictionary—now expanded and updated—has served for over twenty years as the go-to resource for writers who are determined to capture the world in just the right words.

  The dictionary uses a unique reverse definition-to-term format that makes it easy to zero in on the term you're seeking. Turn to the new section on sensory impressions, for example, to find vivid terms for "loud or jarring," such as "grating," "harsh," "piercing," "blaring," "thunderous," "cacophonous," and "raucous." And at the end of each section dozens of illustrative passages by notable fiction and nonfiction authors—including Donna Tartt, Michael Lewis, Zadie Smith, Khaled Hosseini, and Paul Theroux—bring the terminology to life.

  New in this edition:

  • Hundreds of additional definitions, terms, and synonyms

  • Brand-new categories, including "Physical States and Symptoms," "Temperament and Behavior," "Rooms and Interior Spaces," "Weather and Forces of Nature," and "The Solar System"

  • Over 400 new quotations from books, periodicals, and digital media by established and rising literary stars

  • An index of the more than 600 authors quoted in the book
