We all know the feeling: trying to find a synonym for a word, we turn to a thesaurus and find a group of words that might be right, but the thesaurus doesn't provide us with definitions. So, we then turn to the dictionary to check the meanings for the entire list of new synonyms and, aftermuch flipping back and forth between thesaurus and dictionary, finally decide upon an alternative. Neither book, by itself, provides the full range of word choices. But now, The Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus offers a thoroughly integrated blend of entries from the dictionary and the thesaurus.This unified approach, treating meanings and related words within the same entry, makes it easy to find--in one place--an abundance of information about words, and provides a far more thorough analysis of the variety and nuances of our language than is possible in a dictionary or thesaurus alone. Oxford's American dictionary staff, along with an international team of lexicographers, have drawn on the unparalleled lexical resources of Oxford University Press, the world's most respected authority on English language and dictionaries, to make The Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus the mostwide-ranging resource available. It includes: * More than 190,000 definitions and 300,000 synonyms thoroughly integrated for ease of use * Full coverage of English from around the globe--brassed off, merrythought, billabong, Charles's Wain * Hundreds of new words such as shareware, carbon tax, grunge, and ram-raid Valuable appendices, including: * Selected Proverbs--more than 1,000 new and old favorites such as "Handsome is as handsome does," "A trouble shared is a trouble halved," and "There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle." Terms for Animal Groups (a gang of elk, a troop of kangaroos, a parliament of rooks) * Weights and Measures * Chemical Elements * Musical Notation * Presidents of the U.S. * Countries of the World * Helpful points on English usage, and much more No American dictionary or thesaurus offers as much as The Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus. It not only combines an up-to-date and thoroughly reliable dictionary of American English with full thesaurus coverage, but it also provides a unique global perspective of English, the lingua franca of thelate twentieth century.… (mere)

We were given this dictionary and thesaurus by our sons one of whom has it and swears by it. It seems to combine the two functions successfully. Each word has its definition, some etymology (the part that I feel may be weakest) and then a list of synonyms and sometimes antonyms.

THe fun bit is the centre section that contains list of useful words such as onomatapoeic words, archaic words, words that begin with X and so on. So it will be very useful for crosswords scrabble and the like.
