9780199297740: Oxford-Paravia Italian Dictionary (English and Italian Edition)

The second edition of the Oxford-Paravia Italian Dictionary' is the most complete and up-to-date Italian dictionary available. It covers contemporary terms such as aid worker, climate change, and life coach, and includes specialist EU terminology such as acquis and revolving presidency. The 7,000 most frequently used words in Italian are highlighted to help you learn essential vocabulary. This edition also features cultural notes that provide lively and interesting information on life in Italy, and a guide to correspondence, which includes sample letters, emails, CVs, and help with text messaging. There are notes throughout the A-Z text to warn of politically sensitive vocabulary, to alert you to key differences between Italian and English, and to show how words such as with and before are used in different contexts. This edition retains such popular features as quick-reference verb tables, and lists of vocabulary on topics such as seasons, rivers, sports, and more. It is an essential reference tool for all serious students of Italian at university level and beyond, and for those who need an authoritative and comprehensive guide to Italian.
