This new, fourth edition of The Chambers Thesaurus is fully revised and updated with the latest words entering the language that reflect a range of social and technological changes. From the digital world comes the growth of 'citizen journalism', the menace of the 'cyberbully' and the tricky rules of 'netiquette'. The green agenda is explored through the evolution of recycling - 'precycle' and 'upcycle' - as well as the inclusion of 'organic' and 'e-waste'. From the economic recession comes 'agflation', 'NEET', 'cash-strapped' and the increasingly popular 'daycation'.
