Elsevier's Russian-English Dictionary
Second, Revised Edition\
P. Macura

Cover Page    Since the publication of the first edition in 1990, over 40,000 entries, or 375 pages of lexical material, were added to this Second Revised Edition. It now contains approximately 280,000 key entries, constituting the most extensive listing of vocabulary in the areas of the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, technical and scientific vocabulary covering anthropology, biology, botany, chemistry, geology, medicine, etc.

    The extended scope of this dictionary is due to the incorporation of Russian key entries occurring in many Russian dictionaries and well-known Russian language books, as well as entries which the compiler has gathered over many years.

This dictionary also contains a wealth of grammatical information and cross-references which is unmatched not only in the Russian-English dictionaries, but in the major Russian dictionaries themselves. Nouns, adjectives and verbs are covered extensively.

Nouns - the genitive case ending and gender of all nouns are indicated. Wherever necessary, the nominative singular is accompanied by instances of other case endings in the singular and plural.

Adjectives - adjectives are listed in the masculine nominative singular. The short predicative forms, if any, follow the masculine nominative singular. The feminine ending and neuter ending follow the masculine form ending.

Verbs - the imperfective and perfective verbs are listed together with the corresponding English translation. All verbs are followed by first and second person singular endings. The first and second person singular endings are followed by other endings if a verb is irregularly conjugated. Only those imperatives are listed which may cause difficulties for students and translators. Special care has been given to masculine past tense forms, past passive participles and past adverbial participles. Shift of stress from a stressed syllable to the preceding syllable has also been clearly detailed. These examples provide a succinct indication of the way in which a comprehensive dictionary puts fuller grammatical information before the student or translator when there are irregularities in the Russian language.

As with the first edition, it will be an essential tool for students, teachers, professors, libraries, translators, and research institutes of the Russian language.

Elsevier's Dictionary of Science and Technology
Vol. I: Russian-English
Vol. II: English-Russian

G. Chakalov, Sofia, Bulgaria

Vol. I: Russian-English

This dictionary includes terms from all fields of technology plus terms from such fields of science as economics, law, mathematics, social sciences, medicine, informatics and cybernetics. In view of the growing trend of interdisciplinariness in research work, the aim and scope of the dictionary is to meet the requirements for complementariness in relation to special terms from relevant secondary or auxiliary fields of knowledge.

Vol. II: English-Russian

This dictionary includes terms from all fields of technology plus terms from such fields of science as economics, law, mathematics, social sciences, medicine, informatics and cybernetics. All terms of economics, finance, law and social sciences which have emerged in the Russian language since 1990 are included. The aim of the dictionary is to serve the needs of translators and scientists, resulting from the growing trend of interdisciplinariness in sciences today, which involves the use of terms common to many fields of science, not included in specialized dictionaries.

Elsevier's Dictionary of Statistical Terminology
English-Russian and Russian-English

D.S. Silvestrov, E.D. Silvestrova, UmeŚ University, Sweden, with the collaboration of
G. Kulldorff, UmeŚ Sweden

Statistics is one of the significant and rapidly developing areas of modern science, followed by the rapid growth of statistical terminology. The present dictionary differs from existing dictionaries in the field by focusing on a broader concept of modern statistics as a comprehensive scientific domain. Topics covered include mathematical statistics and probability theory as a methodological basis, computational statistics and statistical software as an instrumental basis, and comprehensive applied components in economics, sociology, demography, medicine, natural sciences, and technology. The volume provides an extensive collection of terms in the fields of computer terminology connected with problems of data processing and statistical software, theory of random processes, statistical quality control, operations research, and some supplementary areas such as the terminology of Russian official statistics.

As the dicitionary presents the largest English-Russian and Russian-English collection of statistical terminology available to date, this dictionary will be invaluable to present-day readers, translators, and other experts who work with English and Russian statistical literature.
