The Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary
Spanish-English, English-SpanishBook - 2009 | 4th ed. edited by Nicholas Rollin
The Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary also comes in an edition with a Spanish-Language cover, designed for users whose first language is Spanish. Compiled by expert teams of Spanish and English lexicographers, this brand new edition contains over 175,000 words and phrases, and 240,000 translations, including numerous new words that have entered both languages in recent years. Not only does it provide remarkable coverage of the general, scientific, literary, and technical vocabulary of contemporary Spanish and English, the Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary is also easy to use, with an ultra-clear layout featuring a two-color text design and printed thumb tabs for quick reference. The Dictionary also provides extensive help with tricky issues of grammar and word usage. And in addition to providing a wealth of information on both languages, it also includes a thoroughly revised center section, featuring a correspondence guide with sample letters, emails, and CVs, plus a guide to telephoning and text messaging. The book also contains fun and informative culture notes on life and living in the Spanish-speaking world, plus new sections on Spanish as used around the world and false friends (similar words that mean very different things). Also new to this edition is an internet supplement, covering online shopping, banking and booking tickets, plus social networking.
