The newly updated, pocket-sized edition of the most popular Spanish-English dictionary.
Designed for a wide range of users, including travelers, business people, students, teachers, and professionals, the new Dictionary is the essential first resource for speakers of Spanish and English—from beginners to those at every stage. No other dictionary offers so many users so much help—or so much value.
With thousands of new entries, the new Dictionary builds on the features that have made it the leader in its field for more than fifty years: authority, scope, clarity, and conciseness. And with this edition, the Dictionary brilliantly captures the current core vocabularies of two rapidly changing—and increasingly connected—languages and cultures. It also features: new words and meanings for a new age; greater help in finding the right words, and enhanced language and grammar guides.
Here’s real help in speaking and writing correctly, with enriched, updated coverage—in Spanish and English—of the essentials of language and grammar, including pronunciation, parts of speech, suffixes, and regular and irregular verbs.
David Pharies, professor of Spanish at the University of Florida, is a widely known expert on the history and development of the Spanish language. He has written about many aspects of Spanish philology and linguistics.
