Description

This is a dictionary of foreign-language terms, words, mottos and phrases used in English speech and writing. Languages range from Aramaic and Greek to Russian and Swahili, from Hebrew and Sanskrit to Tagalog and Yiddish. The dictionary brings together information ordinarily to be found only on a shelf full of reference books. Ideal for the browser with a taste for the curious, the book also has a full English index, making it equally useful for teachers, students, travellers, diplomats and secretaries, as well as for anyone who reads or writes.show more
