The Oxford Russian Dictionary by P. S Falla( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary is the first to reflect the changes in the Russian language since the fall of the Iron Curtain. Special emphasis is placed on current idioms and colloquial usage with thousands of examples to illustrate their use. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Russian language has exploded, responding to new idioms, terminology, and usage pouring in from the West. Anyone wishing to keep up with contemporary Russian will search existing dictionaries in vain for such words as "cash machine," "road rage," "mobile phone," and many other terms reflecting the rapidly changing reality in the former Soviet Union. This completely revised edition of The Oxford Russian Dictionary is the first to incorporate those changes. Offering a comprehensive look at both languages, it includes over 185,000 words and phrases and 290,000 translations. 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. Features include: Over 185,000 words and phrases, and 290,000 translations to provide comprehensive coverage of contemporary Russian and English; All the latest vocabulary from "hyperinflation" to "multimedia" and from "cash machine" to "electronic security system" and "road rage"; Special emphasis on current idioms and colloquial usage with thousands of examples to illustrate their use; The latest business, computing, and specialist vocabulary along with common abbreviations and acronyms; Attractive layout to facilitate ease of use, improved typography, and Russian alphabet at the foot of each page

"Oxford's new rapid-access page designs set most words as entries in their own right to avoid long paragraphs that hide related words. Clear margins, special typefaces, and symbols ensure exceptional clarity. Paper and binding styles are carefully selected for their durability. Jargon has been translated into plain English, and confusing abbreviations simplified or avoided." "Every definition is based on wide scrutiny of real evidence, drawn from millions of unique citations collected by The Oxford World Reading Program. In addition, Oxford lexicographers have access to a 100-million-word corpus, with rapid computer search-and-analysis techniques providing answers to the most complex language queries." "For greater clarity, the most important meaning of each word is placed first. This is followed by derived senses, technical senses, slang, idioms, and historical or obsolete senses. To help users distinguish between correct and incorrect grammar and usage, reliable guidance is provided by Language in Use panels on larger dictionaries and concise in-text notes in smaller ones."--BOOK JACKET
