PREFACE
This is an English thesaurus designed for Latin American speakers who wish to
better understand the ambiguities and richness of the English language. The first
chapter is a full English thesaurus organized by 1668 Latin American subject
words. For each Latin American subject word, one or more corresponding
English subject words (translations) are provided. Synonyms are then given for
the English translations for all relevant parts of speech (even in cases where the
Latin American subject word has a unique part of speech). This process results in
over 14587 English synonyms.

The second chapter gives an index of these English synonyms back to the Latin
American subject words (a potentially useful chapter to English speakers
interested in basic Latin American vocabulary). The third chapter has short
vocabulary lists organized by parts-of-speech. English teachers or students can
use these bilingual lists to create flash cards, basic lesson plans, and English as a
Second Language (ESL) study lists.

While creating an English thesaurus for Latin American speakers seems simple
enough, it can be tricky. What’s the problem? Translations do not always follow
strict transitivity. Normally, if a=b and b=c, then c=a. This is not necessarily true
in linguistics when b is an English word that has more than one part of speech.
For example, “test” is a verb, noun and adjective. What is the correct English
synonym for “a” (in Latin American) when “b” (in English) has synonyms (“c”)
having many parts of speech? Furthermore, what if “a” (in Latin American) is
ambiguous and has several translations into English (“b”)? This thesaurus
embraces this ambiguity by giving as much information to the reader as possible.
This was accomplished in two phases. In the first phase, maximum-likelihood
English translations of the Latin American subject words are given. For all the
languages covered in Webster’s Online Dictionary translations are determined
using rather massive content analyses of translations from various sources
including translations of United Nations documents, translations of the Holy
Bible (and similar sources), training manuals, popular works, and academic
sources. An English translation having the highest probability of being used is
reported first, then the second most probable is reported second, and so on.

iv

In the second phase, English synonyms for all parts of speech, including those
not related to the original Latin American subject, are given for each English
translation generated by the first phase. If an English entry is most used as a
certain part of speech (estimated based on an English language corpus), then
English synonyms for that part of speech are listed first. This indicates to the
speaker of Latin American how the English subject word is most used. Other
parts of speech are listed based on their frequency of usage in English. Within
each part of speech, synonyms most likely to be used in English are listed first.
Readers who seek further information on any of the words in this book,
including translations to other world languages, can freely refer to Webster’s
Online Dictionary (www.websters-online-dictionary.org).

The goal of Webster’s Online Dictionary is to give all people of the world free
access to a complete mapping of all known words to and from all written
languages. In fulfillment of this goal, Webster’s Online Dictionary
(www.websters-online-dictionary.org) also offers as much information as
possible for each word, including definitions, translations, images, trade name
usage, quotations, and encyclopedic knowledge. The proceeds generated by the
sale of this Latin American–English thesaurus dictionary as well as other books
extracted from the project will be used to augment the contents of the Webster’s
Online Dictionary.

This book may be the first Latin American-English thesaurus ever published. All
the errors and omissions are mine. I will certainly revise and improve this book
at some later date, so if you wish to see better editions published in the future,
please send any suggestions, corrections, or translations to
webstersedits2@hotmail.com. Thank you for purchasing this book and
supporting Webster’s Online Dictionary.
