Best Chinese Synonyms book?

Posted by rabaka_g October 29, 2013 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi.  I've got about 1500 characters under my belt, and lately my most common problem is working out the subtle differences between all the new words I'm learning 比方说 立刻和马上; 提议和建议。Because a dictionary pretty much provides the same definition, I need another reference to understand the difference.

I've researched and found the following books:

1700 Groups of Frequently Used Chinese Synonyms 

Chinese Synonyms Usage Dictionary by Teng Shou-hsin 

The 2nd one seems the best to me, however I can't read traditional characters so I don't think I'll get this one.

Does anyone have any other recommendations for a book to thoroughly explain the differences between synonyms?

Thanks a lot

Rebecca
