The Picture Thesaurus

In English you can eat, dine, devour, slurp, or munch. In daily conversation, most people say "eat", but a rich literature keeps the other words alive.

In Laos, too, daily conversation uses a relatively limited vocabulary. But with so few books available, the more expressive words of Lao are in danger of being forgotten. This thesaurus, the first in Laos, is amply illustrated to make it enjoyable for children, but will also be valuable for writers of all ages.
