Publisher Comments:

The Oxford Paperback Spanish Dictionary and Grammar is a complete and handy reference to the Spanish language. It has been designed to meet the needs of students at all levels, as well as the needs of tourists and business people. Offering extensive guidance to the meaning and use of over 45,000 words and phrases, and 70,000 translations, including up-to-date information on colloquial and technical words, this new reference book for modern Spanish and English covers the grammar of international Spanish, providing Latin-American usage wherever educated usage differs markedly from the European. The Grammar section offers full and clear coverage of the construction of the language, including explanations of the differences between spoken and written Spanish (with helpful examples taken from everyday speech, newspapers, and magazines), and separate sections on word order, prepositions and their use, punctuation, and up-to-date information on colloquial and technical words. With many example sentences showing words in use, helpful tips on translation problems and pronunciation traps, verb tables showing how to conjugate irregular verbs, and a comprehensive glossary of grammatical terms, this new reference book offers swift and easy-to-use reference for all aspects of the Spanish language. For those just learning the French or those fine-tuning their language skills, this is an essential resource.
