Sybrina’s Phrase Thesaurus was first offered for sale, in 1993, in pdf format with a hyperlinked table of contents.   The tool is still available at PhraseThesaurus.com.  The book has been available, in its entirety,  as an Ebook since 2009.  The massive size of the book, well over 800 pages, made it financially impossible to offer it in print until the print-on-demand industry became easily available to independent authors and publishers.  In order to keep the price of the books in print lower, the book has been split into 3 smaller sections.  

 

The books are sub-titled and described as follows:

 

MOVING PARTS – Part 1 - This book encompasses the top half of the body, describing how it moves and functions.  Part 1 covers the everything to do with the head, including voluntary and involuntary actions such as listening, blushing, breathing, winking, coughing, singing and much more.

 

MOVING PARTS – Part 2 - This book encompasses all of the lower body below the neck, describing how it moves and functions.  Part 2 covers topics such as shrugging shoulders, reaching out to touch someone, heart beats, shivering, aching bones, stomach churning, hand gestures, posing, sitting, walking, running and much more.  The Body In Motion section includes jumping, skipping, turning, sitting down and getting up, bending, stretching, squirming, falling and body in repose. The Daily Activities section includes creative ways to describe eating meals, driving cars, using a telephone, changing clothes and more.  The Figures (or Expressions) Of Speech section includes ideas for writing smooth flowing conversations.  Much more than just “He said, She said”.  Finally the Emotions section contains descriptions of emotions.  Joy, anger, fear, sadness and many more.

 

 PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES – This book encompasses all of the body describing how different parts of the human body look, from head to toe.  This book covers topics such as facial shapes and expressions, age and youth.  There are descriptions for bald heads and different kinds of hair styles and colors.  There are descriptions for skin colors and textures and all kinds of ways to describe eyes, ears, noses and mouths.  The rest of the body is described in great detail as well.
