What are good books and other resources for gaining higher proficiency in vocabulary use and becoming a master wordsmith in English?
-
For example, resources focused on etymological roots of words (e.g. Greek, Latin, etc), without learning those root languages entirely (not feasible), would be helpful.
-
For wrangling up new vocabulary, I'd prefer more than just a simplistic listing of words or thesaurus (most thesaruses suck, anway). Something more geared toward learning them. In addition to those, a decent (electronic and/or online if possible) thesaurus would be nice, noting that most suggest basic, obvious words (like the suck that is thesaurus.com).
