The book of Thesaurus is always a writer’s best friend. Any writing composition is finest when polished with the help of the Thesaurus. Thus, it is but fair enough to celebrate the birth of Peter Mark Roget, author of the Roget’s Thesaurus, born on January 18, 1779. Seemingly, his name is less familiar.

However, his book is eminent. It develops a person’s English vocabulary and enhances one’s wisdom on when to use such words in a composition. Unlike the dictionary which only shows the meaning of a word, a Thesaurus illustrates list of words which are tantamount to a given word.

It presents a selection of words for a person to use to avoid redundancy in word usage. If there is the best way to celebrate Thesaurus Day, then it will be reading the book itself on this day and expand one’s vocabulary.
