In general usage, a thesaurus is a reference work that lists words grouped together according to similarity of meaning containing synonyms and sometimes antonyms , in contrast to a dictionary , which provides definitions for words, and generally lists them in alphabetical order. The main purpose of such reference works is for users "to find the word, or words, by which [an] idea may be most fitly and aptly expressed," quoting Peter Mark Roget , author of Roget's Thesaurus. Although including synonyms, a thesaurus should not be taken as a complete list of all the synonyms for a particular word. The entries are also designed for drawing distinctions between similar words and assisting in choosing exactly the right word. Unlike a dictionary , a thesaurus entry does not give the definition of words. In library science and information science , thesauri have been widely used to specify domain models.
