类语词典/类属词典。。。Chinese thesaurus

Posted by bababardwan November 10, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

I may well have missed it, but I don't ever recall seeing a thesaurus discussed on the CPod boards. Do Chinese have them and use them? [ I guess they likely do]...are they commonly used?...should we be using them? My feeling to the last question is probably not. We're usually busy trying to sort out the different nuances of meaning and usage between similar words and it's probably higher level stuff when you want to have a more impressive vocab rather than being down at utility level. Still I'm curious about what anyone has to say on the subject. I'm also guessing the second Chinese word for it in the title of this post is the more commonly used term of the two. Thoughts/comments?
