This volume, subtitled "A Thematic Dictionary," is not only a useful reference tool, but also a fun read. The cool thing is that the words are organized by category rather than alphabetically. You'll find sections on everything from bowling to Buddhism. Try matching these terms with their definitions:

a. caprile
b. rooster
c. peplum

1. a river wave with a crest that turns back on itself, sometimes swamping canoes (from Canoeing)
2. a Roman structure used to house goats (from Architecture)
3. a narrow dress having a short ruffle below the waistline (from Dresses)
