About this title

Synopsis:

Acclaimed by language professionals the world over, The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary leads the way in modern bilingual lexicography. The first ever French dictionary to be based entirely on the statistical evidence of vast electronic databanks of real language, both written and spoken, it is the most comprehensive, reliable, and up-to-date dictionary of French and English available today.
This major new edition provides new up-to-date vocabulary and extensive in-text cultural notes on many aspects of the French-speaking world, from political and educational systems, to festivals, important historical facts, famous places, and national newspapers. The edition also boasts a revised correspondence section that provides 75 model letters, with information on business correspondence via email and the internet. A new text design makes every entry easy to navigate, so that you can find the information you require quickly and effortlessly, and in-text boxes throughout provide extended treatment of complex function words. Overall, the Dictionary still provides the finest coverage available of the general, scientific, and technical vocabulary of contemporary French and English--with 360,000 words and phrases and more than 542,000 translations. As an aid to students of French literature, the Dictionary provides excellent coverage of vocabulary used by writers such as Zola, Dumas, Proust, and Hugo. There are also more than 90 pages of practical guidance for those who plan to reside in France, including help in writing job applications and CVs, and a section on using the telephone in France.
With more words and phrases than any other single-volume French dictionary, plus special features designed to help both students and travelers, the new edition of The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary remains the first choice in bilingual dictionaries.
