This book, designed for students who have already developed a basic competence in Russian, aims to broaden and improve their vocabulary by providing detailed information on groups of Russian words with related meanings. It is invaluable as a guide to finding the right word for the context. In order to enhance understanding of the structure of the Russian vocabulary, groups of synonyms are organised under Russian (rather than English) headwords. All entries are accompanied by examples of usage and English glosses and there are two indexes allowing users quickly to locate words in Russian or English. The book takes full account of register variation, indicating the degree of formal or informal use. It is an essential reference for college students and undergraduates as well as teachers and other professional linguists seeking access to the finer nuances of the Russian language.
