Most dictionaries of synonyms are not as helpful as they might first appear: This dictionary, however, goes beyond a mere listing of words with a similar meaning and helps distinguish them. The differences between similar words are shown by giving each one a definition and an example.
The definitions show the various shades of meaning of the group of synonyms. The examples show the context in which a word is used and which other words typically occur with each synonym.

Martin Manser. The English language is peculiarly rich in synonyms, as, with such a history, it could not fail to be.
English merchants, sailors, soldiers, and travelers, trading, warring, and exploring in every clime, of necessity brought back new terms of sea and shore, of shop and camp and battlefield. English scholars have studied Greek and Latin for a thousand years, and the languages of the Continent and of the Orient in more recent times. English churchmen have introduced words from Hebrew, Greek, and Latin, through Bible and prayer-book, sermon and tract.
From all this it results that there is scarcely a language ever spoken among men that has not some representative in English speech.
The spirit of the Anglo-Saxon race, masterful in language as in war and commerce, has subjugated all these various elements to one idiom, making not a patchwork, but a composite language.
Anglo-Saxon thrift, finding often several words that originally expressed the same idea, has detailed them to different parts of the common territory or to different service, so that we have an almost unexampled variety of words, kindred in meaning but distinct in usage, for expressing almost every shade of human thought. Scarcely any two of such words, commonly known as synonyms, are identical at once in signification and in use.
They have certain common ground within which they are interchangeable; but outside of that each has its own special province, within which any other word comes as an intruder. I am looking for a kindle searchable English thesaurus like the kindle default dictionary but this one does not have that functionality. However the degree of coverage across terms varies widely and at times lacks any antonyms -- even when these are not necesarily hard to derive.
Overall, its a good start but needs more attention to detail and more comprehensive coverage of the English language. It has substantial cross-referencing to other entries for words listed under "similar" and "dissimilar". Many of these are helpful and make sense. These reasonably are interesting to read and sometimes include famous quotes or poetic verses.
Curiously there is no clear distinction between parts of speech and some entries are still very limited. For example: SNEER is then treated mostly though not totally as a noun. Shifts back and forth between noun and verb forms of the synonyms are subtle and not always clearly identified.
There was a fairly generous list of synonyms. No antonyms. A native English reader by experience can quickly accommodate to the fact that the majority of examples had to do with its use as a noun and would be able to adapt these to verb or adjective forms when needed. But this process could be hard to sort out for anyone learning English, or using it regularly as a secondary language. Unfortunately, it seems these are the persons who might be most attracted to a resource such as this.
Finally, it still seems substantially incomplete unless combined with the default dictionary in Kindle The New Oxford American Dictionary which explains the use of the word "MOCK" as a noun, verb, and adjective.
Kindle's built-in dictionary actually incuded mock as a modifier. These were not included at all in Fernald's book.
Kind of clunky to use, It would be better if there were an interactive content list at the beginning of the book. So you have to look for everything and hope you stumble upon it.
Was very! Very handy, can use another.
Not user friendly for sixth graders and their parents. Very poor choice on our part when ordering. More information found in out-of-date dictionary in our possession.
I deleted it!!! Did not provide a list of alternative words as anticipated.
Not clear and precise enough for use. Content could be arranged better. There's no alphabetical word index. That's the only problem. In general, I'm satisfied with the explanations given to the words. What an excellent find.
