A new, and dramatically

improved, three-pronged

approach to learning Spanish


The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary

is much, much more than a Spanish vocabulary

reference! This unique and complete

resource combines three complementary

approaches to vocabulary building—cognates,

root families, and suffixes—to

instantly increase word familiarity and aid


Whether for active face-to-face communication

or passive comprehension of written or

spoken words, an in-depth knowledge of

vocabulary is the key to foreign language

mastery. The Big Red Book of Spanish

Vocabulary makes acquiring this mastery

simpler and more straightforward than ever

before by providing:

  • An extensive thematic list of Spanish

    cognates and an alphabetic glossary of

    Spanish root families—both with more

    than 14,000 entries

  • A comprehensive listing of the 130 most

    common Spanish suffixes, with 4,000

    common examples

  • A frequency index listing the 5,000 most

    frequently used words in Spanish

  • An alphabetic index cross-referencing

    every entry in the root, suffix, and

    frequency sections
