The Oxford-Duden Pictorial French and English Dictionary

Second Edition
"Proof that a picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words."--Library Journal

Now available in paperback editions, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries provide parallel English and foreign word lists containing 29,000 items for each language. Based on the premise that pictures can more clearly convey certain kinds of information, these dictionaries present a list of vocabulary relating to a subject together with a picture illustrating that subject.

Each double-page spread links the words by number to the picture situation drawn from everyday life; 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects in the fields of science, medicine, technology, industry, commerce, and arts and leisure, including astronomy, automobiles, swimming, supermarkets, nuclear energy, nightclubs, and much more. Both English and foreign words appear on the same page for easy use. The dictionaries also provide fully alphabetized indices in both languages which refer the reader not only to the various subjects and contexts in which a word is used, but also to the correct translation and vocabulary of the entire subject.

An essential reference for general readers, translators, travelers, and business people, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries serve as an invaluable supplement to other foreign language guides.

The Oxford-Duden Pictorial French and English Dictionary, Second Edition has been completely updated and revised to include the most recent innovations in science and technology and to offer increased coverage of all major fields of reference.
