9780004705859: The Collins German Dictionary: Major New Edition

Covering all the vocabulary of current issues, with evidence drawn from Collins’ unique multi-million word databanks of contemporary German and English, the fourth edition also incorporates all of the changes from the recent German spelling reforms for up-to-the-minute accuracy.

Collins are delighted to announce the publication of the fourth edition of Collins German Dictionary. The dictionary has been extensively revised and updated to cover all the vocabulary of current issues (alcopop, netiquette, windfall tax, Elchtest, Reformstau), and all changes from the recent German spelling reform have been incorporated into the text. Thousands of new phrases and indicators have been added from evidence and examples drawn from Collins’ unique multi-million word databases of contemporary English and German, ensuring the user has the most complete and accurate picture of real language available today.

New to this edition are special entries on German life and culture which provide the user with detailed information about Germany and the German-speaking world – politics, education, festivals and traditions – where a simple translation is not enough.

Further new features are improved user-friendliness in style and layout, information on hyphenation and more help on pronunciation, with phonetics now included for German as well as English headwords.
All the proven features are retained – complete reliability and the most up-to-date coverage – reaffirming this as the German/English dictionary for the new millennium.

From the Publisher:

Acclaimed for its comprehensive vocabulary coverage, Collins' top-of-the-range German Dictionary is the most authoritative and reliable German dictionary on the market. Drawing on the vast resources of Collins' multi-million-word language databanks, it provides the user with an incomparably accurate, up-to-date picture of how real German is used today.

While the specialised nature of some of the entries ensures that it will be the dictionary of choice for academics, university and higher level school students, and language professionals, there is much which any language learner will find accessible. The clear typography and uncluttered layout, for example, and the highlighted keyword features, provide the most user-friendly aid to translation possible. There is also help available for typical translation problems and detailed information about Germany and the German-speaking world in the form of extended cultural entries.

Complex entries and common lexical structures have been given in-depth treatment with special layouts, and pronunciation is clearly shown for both languages.

The Language In Use section shows hundreds of contemporary examples of how everyday German is used. It includes guidance on essay-writing and correspondence, and gives help in expressing yourself in a wide variety of situations, with categories such as "Likes, Dislikes and Preferences", "Comparisons" and "Obligation".

The combination of the German dictionary and the Language In Use supplement provides such a complete tool for language learning that satisfaction is guaranteed!
