Acclaimed for its comprehensive vocabulary coverage, Collins' top-of-the-range Italian Dictionary is the most authoritative and reliable Italian 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 Italian 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 Italy and the Italian-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 Italian 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 Italian dictionary and the Language In Use supplement provides such a complete tool for language learning that satisfaction is guaranteed!From the Back Cover:
