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.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—Most notable in these updates is the inclusion of contemporary definitions for such terms as "mouse," "Iron Curtain," and "leveraged buyout." Focusing on student users, the Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary contains more than 1450 pages, and two appendixes. Included are the familiar verb tables for both regular and irregular forms. Other useful tools include endpapers that offer Spanish/English proprietary names along with examples of personal and business correspondence (letters and emails). It also offers "Phrasal verb" and boxed explanations of common English or Spanish content as in "Smithsonian Institution" or "comunidad autónoma." The smaller, less academically focused Desk version gives more consideration to cultural information and protocols. Lists of holidays and guides to curriculum vitae, letter writing, and emails and text messaging (including emoticons) are provided. Distinctions in writing etiquette or practices regarding Spain and Latin America are noted. The book also has an Internet glossary. Both dictionaries feature easy-to-read fonts and bulleting and numbering when appropriate. These accessible editions offer all the essentials of ready-reference tools.—Tina Hudak, St. Albans School for Boys, Washington, DC
