Drawing on the major new edition of the highly acclaimed Oxford Spanish Dictionary published in 2003, this third edition of the Concise Oxford Spanish Dictionary contains up-to-date coverage of over 170,000 words and phrases, and 240,000 translations, with hundreds of new words in each language. New additions include bioterrorism, rate tart, spread betting, stability pact, and stealth tax.
This new edition also includes the introduction of some popular features of the Oxford Spanish Dictionary such as a spread on text messaging in Spanish, and notes on the life and culture of countries of the Spanish-speaking world.
The design has been transformed by the use of colour and a new presentation of the dictionary information, making this dictionary more accessible and easier than ever to use, and an essential tool for those who need an authoritative and concise guide to Spanish and English.
