Publisher Comments:

Ever wanted to call someone a “big shot” or “hick” in Spanish, or wondered how to say “Let's pig out” or “Don't give me a hard time”? And what's going on if a Spaniard “hallucinates in color” (alucina en colores) or if a Mexican “throws an eye-taco” (echa un taco de ojo)? This book has all the answers and more, contained within 5,000 current idiomatic terms and slang expressions-all conveniently grouped in an A-Z thematic arrangement.

Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus is a uniquely user-friendly guide, designed for reference, for browsing, and as a learning tool.

  • Thesaurus contains almost 150 general categories or themes
  • Regional markers indicate countries or regions of use for every entry
  • Numerous example sentences with their translations provide context
  • Cartoons add a touch of humor
  • Short articles highlight specific linguistic or cultural usages
  • Self-test sections allow you to work on your active colloquial vocabulary
  • Spanish-English dictionary cross-references all 5,000 terms and expressions included in the thesaurus.

Whether you're a student, teacher, businessperson, or tourist, you'll enjoy enriching your Spanish with the vibrant language usually understood by native speakers alone. But be warned-the Spanish language is one of the world's richest, and some expressions are particularly colorful!

Synopsis:

People who are fed up (hasta la madre--"up to the mother") with classroom Spanish will enjoy this A-to-Z thematic arrangement of more than 5,000 colorful terms and slang expressions from across the Spanish-speaking world. "Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus" includes numerous examples, quizzes, humorous illustrations, cultural information, and help with usage. How good is that? (Que Padre!--"What a father").
