This new edition of the Oxford Italian Minidictionary" offers up-to-date coverage of all the essential day-to-day vocabulary with over 40,000 words and phrases, and 60,000 translations. The latest words in each language have been added, reflecting all aspects of life today - boy band, google, identity theft, heritage tourism, speed dating. New cultural notes give the essential background to life in the Italian-speaking world. Other key features include warning symbols to identify slang and informal language, and special help with finding the correct translation of frequently used words, which are difficult to translate, because they appear in so many different contexts - words like can, do, have, and be. A new menu-reader section has been added, so you know exactly what you're getting to eat, and the acclaimed phrasefinder gives you superfast access to all the words and expressions you need for everyday situations - shopping, travelling, asking for directions, or finding a place to stay. Finally, the conversion charts for distance, weights and measures, and clothing and shoe sizes make travelling abroad easier than ever before. All of these features are packed into a pocket-sized, durable format, and, with a brand-new text design and layout, this dictionary is more accessible and easy-to-use than ever before. Ideal for general users, business people, holiday makers, and travellers, the "Oxford Italian Minidictionary" is your perfect mini-guide to Italian."
