In The Oxford Spanish Dictionary, Oxford University Press is pleased to offer a major new bilingual reference for 1994. Based on an intensive research project lasting over eight years, The Oxford Spanish sets a new standard as one of the most authoritative--and useful--foreign language dictionaries available today.
For almost a decade, editors Beatriz Jarman and Roy Russell have led an outstanding team of Spanish and English lexicographers as they amassed the most inclusive and up-to-date Spanish dictionary ever published. They have painstakingly investigated vocabulary, meanings, and grammatical information, providing a work of unprecedented scope that reflects how both languages are spoken and written in all contexts--from literature to informal speech to technical publications. Drawing on expertise from the United States, Latin America, Great Britain, and Spain, the dictionary offers a truly comprehensive lexicon--useful from Kansas City to Caracas, from Manchester to Madrid, from San Francisco to San Juan.
The Oxford Spanish Dictionary offers the highest standards:
DL More than 250,000 words and phrases
DL Over 430,000 translations
DL Thousands of sample sentences to illustrate meaning and usage
DL Special emphasis on idioms and regional usage
DL Extensive glosses for easy identification of senses, style
