Overview

Compiled by expert teams of Spanish and English lexicographers, this new edition contains over 175,000 words and phrases, and 240,000 translations, including numerous new words that have entered both languages in recent years. Not only does it provide remarkable coverage of the general, scientific, literary, and technical vocabulary of contemporary Spanish and English, the Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary is also easy to use, with a clear layout featuring a two-color text design and printed thumb tabs for quick reference. The Concise also provides extensive help with tricky issues of grammar and word usage. In addition to providing a wealth of information on both languages, it also includes a thoroughly revised center section featuring a correspondence guide with sample letters, and emails plus a guide to making phone calls and text messaging. The book contains fun and informative culture notes on life and living in the Spanish-speaking world, plus new sections on Spanish as it is used around the world and false friends (similar words that mean very different things). Also new to this edition is an internet supplement, covering online shopping, banking and booking tickets, plus social networking.
