Antarctic Thesaurus


a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

Antarctica is notoriously difficult to describe. Art and science offer different ways to understand its changing environment.

Roget wrote a book of similes, a thesaurus of words that offer different shades of meaning to express similar ideas. This thesaurus contains words, images, sounds and animations that reflect how people understand Antarctica. In Roget's original text entries are categorised according to their meanings. Here entries are named and arranged alphabetically.
