Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This quick-reference dictionary for language students and travelers to Italy presents more than 4,000 informal, commonly-used words and phrases in Italian with English translations and equivalent phrases. International travelers quickly discover that their textbook knowledge of Italian will take them only so far in understanding and communicating with others. This new edition, updated with many of the most contemporary expressions, will help all students and travelers who have an intermediate-level knowledge of Italian but need to familiarize themselves with informal speech. Words and phrases are presented with grammatical information, their English meanings, and a sentence or extended phrase in Italian to illustrate usage, followed by the English translation. The Dictionary of Italian Slang and Colloquial Expressions is one title in Barron's series of slang dictionaries in several different languages. Because of the nature of slang, these books contain expressions that some readers might find offensive.
