The Oxford Spanish Dictionary: Spanish-English, English-Spanish

Críticas 'Outstanding reference work; particularly good for synonyms. Correspondence formats and examples are also very helpful.'--William Forbes, University of New Hampshire 'An excellent, up-to-date dictionary for all users.'--James A. Cummins, Professor of Spanish, Westminster College 'The Oxford Spanish Dictionary is without a doubt the best dictionary of its kind that I have encountered. Just reading the dictionary constitutes a course in Spanish. You can be assured that I will recommend it to students as well as to colleagues.'--Melba Buxbaum, Chair, Modern Language Department, Blackburn College 'I am delighted by the currency and range of this dictionary, which appears to be up to date in everything from vulgarisms to technology. The sentences illustrating the use of each word constitute in themselves almost a course in each of the languages. From now on I will always have it within arm's reach in my study.'--Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria, Bass Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures, Yale University 'Deftly designed, this dictionary, no doubt the very best of its kind, is a splendid lesson in bilingualism, a bridge between disparate civilizations and tongues, a place of arrival and departure. Prophetically, every single word uttered in Spanish and English right now, every novel and poem written, can already be found in its inexhaustible, magical pages. I am condemned to return to it time and again, always in search for clues to the puzzles of language and the universe.'--Ilan Stavans, author of The Hispanic Condition 'De estructure admirable, este diccionario, sin duda el mejor en su tipo, es una espl((e'))ndida lecci((o'))n de bilinguismo, un puente entre civilizaciones y lenguas diapres, un lugar de arribo y partida. Cada palabra pronunciada en espa((n-))ol o en ingl((e'))s ahora mismo, cada movela o poema escritos, tienen ya, profeticamente, un sitio en sus inexhaustibles, m((a'))gicas p((a'))ginas. Estoy condednado para siempre a regresar ((e'l en busca de las claves ))a los enigmas de la lengua y el universo.'--Ilan Stavans, author of The Hispanic Condition 'What an incredible dictionary this is! I've been putting it to the test, looking up bizarre, weird Spanish American words (like 'macanudo,' an Argentineism or 'guaracha,' a term not in a lot of more traditional dictionaries, from the Caribbean), and I am really impressed.....Coverage of Spanish American (and even Hispanic U.S.) Spanish is outstanding, as near as I can tell. As such, I would say that you have produced a dictionary that is very much of its time and place, which, for my dinero, is what a really first-rate dictionary needs to do....At $35.00, this is an unbelievable bargain.'--Earl Fitz, The Pennsylvania State University the job in terms of New World usage (i.E. The Spanish of the Americas) 'The Oxford Spanish Dictionary gives users all the necessary and expected helps for pronunciation, regional labels, subject labels, collocations, colloquial usage, style levels, and the more popular technical and scientific terms....For Spanish translators into and from English, the Oxford Spanish Dictionary should hold them through the nineties. It carries a reasonable price, is based on a corpus of contemporary material, and is recommended for its helpfulness in choosing which word of many offered is le mot juste.'--ATA Chronicle 'I am so happy with the quality and richness of your dictionary that I am adopting it as the required bilingual dictionary.'--Maria Gagliardo, Professor of Language and Culture, SUNY Purchase 'I will not comment on the price which is simply unbelievably low. But the high quality of the linguistic work deserves some attention: this is one of the most realistic dictionaries I have ever seen. Everything from daily political jargon to vulgarisms seems to have a place in this masterpiece. Last but not least, it is relevant to notice that this democratic and updated dictionary does not consider any particular region as being the most 'correct' in its uses of either Spanish or English: languages have no center--and the editors knew it...' --Miguel Gomes, University of Connecticut, Assistant Professor of Modern & Classical Languages Reseña del editor This Spanish dictionary includes over 250,000 words and phrases; 450,000 translations; fuller coverage of Latin-American Spanish and American English; thousands of example sentences carefully selected to illustrate the full range of meanings and typical contexts; special emphasis on modern idioms and colloquial usage; extensive treatment of specialist and scientific vocabulary; detailed labelling for easy identification of senses, style levels, and regional expressions; full and clear guidance on key constructions, complementation, and difficult points of grammar; and a 100-page guide to self-expression in Spanish and English.
