In the last decade, Oxford University Press has created a unique program in bilingual dictionaries, wherein we have joined forces with leading foreign dictionary publishers to create reference works of unparalleled currency and reliability. These works include The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary, The Oxford-Duden German Dictionary, and The Oxford Spanish Dictionary, all of which are now the leading unabridged dictionaries in their field.
Now, in associations with Paravia, one of the foremost publishers in Italy, we have produced the newest volume in this series--a landmark unabridged dictionary of Italian. Reflecting the efforts of two national teams of lexicographers, who painstakingly investigated vocabulary, meanings, and grammatical usage in their own particular country, The Oxford-Paravia Italian Dictionary boasts more than 700,000 words, phrases, and translations--far and away the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage available. The dictionary offers superlative guidance on the general, scientific, literary, and technical vocabulary of contemporary Italian and English. Moreover, entries feature helpful illustrative sentences, which are carefully selected to highlight the full range of meanings and typical contexts. The dictionary also provides in-text boxes that provide extensive help with difficult points of grammar and usage, including guidance on key constructions and complementation, plus vocabulary building panels for extra information on the seasons, numbers, sports, and other topics.
The unsurpassed range of this dictionary--along with the extensive vocabulary and usage notes throughout--make it an essential reference work for all serious students of Italian, as well as translators and language professionals.
