9780062708168: Harper Collins-Robert French Unabridged Dictionary

The HarperCollins Robert is simply the best French dictionary you can buy. Here's why:

Over 850,000 entries and translations, completely revised and updated. The HarperCollins Robert goes with you into the 21st Century. With complete coverage of contemporary terms in business, technology, politics, culture, and medicine, the HarperCollins Robert is the most authoritative single-volume French-English dictionary available.

  • More up-to-date. Unlike its competitors, the HarperCollins Robert is updated every two years. Prepared in conjunction with the leading dictionary publisher in France, this dictionary is highly praised for its accuracy, especially in the notoriously slippery arena of French slang.

  • More colloquial usage than any other French Dictionary. With its emphasis on current French and English, extensive cross referencing, and an in-depth guide to usage of idioms and phrases, the HarperCollins Robert has triple the breadth of its competitors.

  • More effective guidance. The HarperCollins Robert contains a 76-page "Language in Use" section, designed to facilitate self-expression in the foreign language, and a comprehensive system of style labels identify whether a word is formal, informal, literary, vulgar, dated, or euphemistic.

Here's a sampling of the new terms this edition includes:

alcopop
frequent Flyer
assisted suicide
internet cafe
cashback
living will
channel-surf
surround sound
Ebola virus
website
E-coli
windfall tax
feng shui
