Here is a fascinating programme about Roget’s Thesaurus.
Half an hour of:
- the history of this standard work of reference, which started as Roget’s notes for his own use, & developed into a retirement project, &
- views on how indispensable/useless the result is in the modern world.
It doesn’t seem possible that the views of the users can be so diverse, does it?
