The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Italian and English Dictionary

The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Italian and English Dictionary, identifies over 29,000 objects by means of numbered illustrations and offers at a glance their Italian and English terms. 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 every day life, while a multitude of 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 Italian words appear on the same page for easy use. 
    The dictionaries also provide fully alphabetized indices in both languages which refer students 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. This new addition to the successful Oxford-Duden Pictorial range is completely up-to-date and includes the most recent innovations in science and technology and the newest developments in the language relating to all major fields of reference. It is an essential reference for all students of Italian and will serve as an invaluable supplement to other foreign language texts and guides.
