The ultimate guide on how to speak eloquently, including 200 well-spoken alternatives to common words & phrases.

If you've ever fumbled while trying to use a big word ('lofty word, ' 'pretentious word') to impress a crowd, you know what it's like to ('know what it is to') be poorly spoken. 

The fear of mispronouncing or misusing complex words is real & leaves many of us consigned to the lower levels ('lower reaches, ' 'lower echelons') of the English language. The secret to eloquence, however, lies in simplicity--the ability to use ordinary words in extraordinary ways.

The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is your guide to eloquence, featuring lessons from some of the most articulate speakers of our past & present. While a common thesaurus provides only synonyms as mere word-for-word equivalents, The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is filled with ('awash in, ' 'instilled with, ' 'dense with, ' 'rich in') dynamic reinventions of standard words & phrases.

Lessons from history's greatest writers & speakers, including: Margaret Atwood, Barack Obama, T. S. Eliot, Edith Wharton, Martin Luther King, Jr., Henry James, Barbara Kingsolver, & John Steinbeck. 

The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is the ultimate vocabulary builder for adults seeking to improve their vocabulary & speak better.
