How does the Thesaurus of Descriptive English help you build great fluency in English?
DESCRIPTIVE ENGLISH is English that you need in order to describe a person, thing, event or situation — that is, to say what they’re like or what happened, by giving details.
If you want to become good at this kind of English, you have to have a practical command of the frequently occurring adverb + verb combinations and adverb + adjective combinations. This book is intended to help you achieve this practical command.
The head-entries in this first-of-its-kind thesaurus are all adverbs. Yes, adverbs. Under each adverb-headword, you’ll find – grouped separately – the verbs and adjectives that conventionally occur with that adverb.
So with this unique thesaurus to hand, you can’t be at a loss to decide what verbs and adjectives normally go with a given adverb.
Every day, look up a few adverb-headwords. Browse through the verbs and adjectives listed under each. Each adverb, together with the verbs and adjectives listed under it, would build up a network of associations in your mind. This will help you achieve a good command not only of those adverbs, but also of those verbs and adjectives. Remember this: The most effective way of mastering adverbs is through the verbs and adjectives they tend to occur with.
