Excellent - I have used the print version of this Thesaurus for years. Although I'm in the US it's always been one of the resources I have reached for first. I'm glad it's now available for the Mac. I also bought WordWeb and Chambers dictionary. The three apps plug into each other for cross referencing. Together they make the most powerful linguistic tool on my Mac. Highly recommend it.

Already on your mac… inside dictionary app - I bought this and thought I was using the app, it turns out the Chambers Thesaurus is already present on your mac (or at least for the newer versions with dictionary app and spotlight search). Check before you purchase. Spotlight search a word, or open the dictionary app, and the thesaurus should be the next tab over from the dictionary tab.
