Oxford Russian English dictionary-hardcover

One of the most comprehensive dictionaries available on the market today!

New Electronic Russian Dictionary

"Review from previous edition Visually different, in that there are now three columns per page rather than two, and headwords appear in a new, bolder, and somewhat larger font. The practical result is that one now finds words faster and with greater ease."

"Forum for Modern Language Studies `An enormous amount of lexicographic resourcefulness invested in the dictionary's macro- and microstructure, a very high degree of technological sophistication."
The International Journal of Lexicography

Book Description This, the fourth edition of the Oxford Russian Dictionary, is an invaluable text for any serious student of Russian, or any Russian native speaker learning English. This edition also contains many enhancements, including new supplementary material with a correspondence section, grammar help, and extra sections on the pronunciation of Russian and English. The text has also been updated with hundreds of new words - in both the English and Russian sides of the dictionary - especially important given changes in language and culture over the last few years. These new words mean that the Oxford Russian Dictionary continues to be the leader in its field as the most comprehensive Russian dictionary available. The dictionary is also more accessible for Russian speakers, with the addition of contextualizations on the Russian-English side to help users select the most appropriate translation. There is an extensive guide to English grammar, written in Russian, and the Russian native speaker who wishes to use or understand American English is well catered for.

Some reviews and recommendations to consider:
I have an older edition of this dictionary, and I recommend it as a comprehensive desk reference dictionary!
Below are some reviews of this Desk Reference dictionary by Amazon customers that I found useful. It's a little pricy, the Oxford Russian dictionary-hardcover is by far one of the better serious reference dictionaries of Russian. If you're learning the language, I'd recommend taking a serious look at this one.

"The Bible of Russian dictionaries...", April 26, 2000

Easily the best Russian dictionary I've ever used, and I've been using them for 50 years. There are so many examples of how the word is used that it's fun just as a casual read. You'll learn a lot more than just a simple definition.

"Fantastic and comprehensive dictionary", October 31, 1999

This dictionary is the best one available for all anyone who is studying the Russian language. It is easy to use and has all the abreviations and everything else you could need.

This is a very serious Reference work and I hope these reviews give you a point of reference as to why you should give this dictionary your consideration. My experience with this dictionary and using many of the other Russian-English dictionaries has proven to me that this is a most useful comprehensive work that could well be the best one you could acquire!
