what's another word for 'thesaurus'?)

its a misprint.
It originally read "The Saurus".
Compared to a humble dictionary its huge since it contains the
dictionary many times over.
The name was intended as an insult based on the understand of
dino-saurus (as they were termed then) at the time.
As is so often the case, the proponents adopted the insulting label as a
badge of honour to show they despised the insult.

Opposition

To reduce someone's influence, first expand it;
To reduce someone's force, first increase it;
To overthrow someone, first exalt them;
To take from someone, first give to them.
This is the subtlety by which the weak overcome the strong:
Fish should not leave their depths,
And swords should not leave their scabbards.
