Multicultural Spanish Dictionary: How Everyday Spanish Differs from Country to Countryby Augustin Martinez, Morry Sofer
Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. What has been overlooked for a long time is the fact that there are thousands of everyday Spanish words that differ from one Spanish-speaking country to the next. A grapefruit in Guatemala is una toronja. In Argentina it is un pomelo. A waiter in Mexico is un mesero; in Uruguay, un mozo. In Spain, eyeglasses are gafas; in Cuba, espejuelos. This list goes on and on. With this multicultural dictionary, you will be able to see and learn the correct words and terms by country.

I teach Spanish so I'm picky and expected something more comprehensive than what I got. You have to look in categories and it would be preferible ro just organize everything alphabetically. The real annoyance is that whoever typed it in did a rushed, sloppy job and didn't bother to hit the tab to start a new line for a new word entry. So one definition runs into another without starting a new line....really annoying. Just buy a good, big edition of Oxford's Sp/Eng dictionary and you're better off.
