Publisher Comments:

The first truly comprehensive, English-Russian/Russian-English to be published in either Russia or the West, The Oxford Russian Dictionary has become the standard reference work for students of Russian as well as for Russian speakers living in the United States. For the revised edition, the editors have added many up-to-date and improved translations to provide even more accurate and idiomatic coverage of contemporary Russian and English.

As in the original, the revised edition offers a comprehensive look at both languages, with over 180,000 words and phrases and 290,000 translations, including such new words as "mobile phone," "genetic fingerprinting," and "biodegradable." The dictionary provides exceptional coverage of regional Russian, British, and American dialects as well as of modern idioms and colloquial usage, with numerous illustrative examples. It also includes all common abbreviations and acronyms, such as DTP, ROM, AIDS, and others; helpful advice on difficult points of grammar; and pronunciation in the International Phonetic Alphabet for every English headword, an indispensable aid for Russian speakers.

Unsurpassed in convenience and in comprehensive, reliable coverage, the new edition of The Oxford Russian Dictionary remains the most authoritative reference on the market.
