The University of Chicago Spanish Dictionary is the most popular dictionary of its kind. Its familiar name is known to millions of general readers, students, educators, and travelers. Improved for greater ease of use, and brought completely up to date, the fifth edition of The University of Chicago Spanish Dictionary is now more than ever the perfect resource for both language learners and experienced language users.

With thousands of added entries, the Dictionary builds on the features that have made it the leader in its field for more than fifty years: authority, scope, clarity, and conciseness. And with this edition, the Dictionary brilliantly captures the current core vocabularies of two rapidly changing—and increasingly connected—languages and cultures.

Entirely bilingual, the fifth edition focuses on two contemporary international languages—American English and a basic, worldwide Spanish that draws from both Latin American and Iberian sources.

Designed for a wide range of users, including travelers, businesspeople, students, teachers, and professionals, the new Dictionary is the essential first resource for speakers of both languages—from beginners to those at all other stages. Up to date, just comprehensive enough, and extraordinarily clear and easy to use, the new edition of The University of Chicago Spanish Dictionary stands alone. No other dictionary offers so many users so much help—or so much value.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's no secret that the Latinization of America is proceeding at a quick pace, so it follows that one of the more important reference books for the new century would be a Spanish-English dictionary. The University of Chicago Press has a history of publishing foreign-language textbooks dating back to the 1920s, and their Spanish-English dictionary has always been well regarded. Lacking the European air of a Larousse or a Langenscheidt, this new edition (the first in 15 years) stresses the malleability of both the American version of English and the Latin American version of Spanish. Besides the obligatory concise descriptions of grammar and verb conjugation, this edition includes new "context cues," which distinguish layers of meaning. For example, "soft" can be used to describe both butter and skin in English, whereas in Spanish, soft butter is blando, and soft skin is suave. Editor Pharies, a professor of Spanish at the University of Florida, also includes an array of jargon for the high-tech world (e.g., en linea for "online"), proving that Latin America is not yet succumbing to vulgar Spanglishisms. While the task of cataloguing regionalisms across Latin America is daunting, this dictionary does capture much of its slang, and even sometimes off-color usage, making the book as warm as its easygoing typeface. (Aug.) Forecast: Previous editions have sold more than 10 million copies, and the publisher notes that this edition is perfect not only for students but for travelers, businesspeople and other professionals.

    University of Chicago Spanish Dictionary

    I was replacing the third edition. You left out the section of 1000 Idioms and Proverbs with Dialectial Variants, I found that very useful in learning how to converse. It is a good dictionary but not any diferent from the rest.
