The object of the present little work is to offer, in a concise form, to those interested in the study of English, a collection of the most important Synonyms in this language. The principal features of this book are:
1. The derivation of each synonym is given.
2. The different shades of meaning of each pair, group, etc. of synonyms are clearly and concisely described.
3. Each synonym is followed by one or more examples, mostly taken from the best English authors.
4. There is an Appendix containing an alphabetical List of Prefixes and Affixes.
The author is well aware of the great difficulty of the work he has undertaken, he must therefore ask those who may be inclined to criticise it, to do as the poet says:
„Take it up tenderly
Treat it with care",
and if they cannot say anything good about it, to say nothing
VIENNA, September, 1882.
