Review:

Compact, comprehensive, and current, The Oxford Hachette Desk Dictionary contains more than 80,000 words and phrases and 115,000 translations, with updated coverage of vocabulary for business, computing, and current affairs. The reference's detailed coverage of contexts and subtle distinctions helps you retain your intended meaning, avoiding awkwardness and embarrassment. It translates many idioms, such as "to have pins and needles," too. A flip through the French side reveals interesting terms such as martyriser (to torment or to martyr), and the many meanings of collant, (sticky, skin-tight, and panty hose). Versatile and accessible, equally useful for speaking and writing, The Oxford Hachette French Desk Dictionary is fitting for students, business, and travel.
