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
