If you want your English to sound as natural as that of a native speaker of English, there’s an important thing you should do: Achieve a fluent command of phrasal verbs.
This book is intended to help you do this.
The head-entries in this thesaurus are all phrasal verbs. Every day, pick up a few head-entries (phrasal verbs) and browse through the words and word groups listed under each. These words and word groups are the synonyms, near-synonyms and other vocabulary items related to the head-entries.
This browsing work will help you in three ways: First, the browsing work connects the phrasal verb (head-entry) in your mind with the words and word groups under it. Second, each word/word group (listed under a head-entry) helps you think of the head-entry (phrasal verb) from a different angle, and so the browsing work helps you get a clear idea of the entire meaning-field of each head-entry (phrasal verb). Third, the browsing work relates the words and word groups under each head-entry with one another through their common relationship to the phrasal verb (head-entry) – and thus strengthens your vocabulary-manipulation power.
So here’s a great book that can help you achieve an excellent com-mand not only of phrasal-verbs, but also of their synonyms and near-synonyms – and thus a fluent command of English. In a way that dictionaries of phrasal verbs can’t.
