Summary

Geared for writers and speakers of American English and Latin American Spanish, this dictionary is more up-to-date and innovative than any other comparable Spanish/English dictionary on the market.

In this bilingual dictionary, "the focus is on Latin American vocabulary and usage and on American English. . . . Syllable divisions and parts of speech are given for all entry words. For Spanish entries the gender indication shows noun function. . . . {Some} idiomatic expressions are given.Different meanings of the same word are introduced by sense discrimination labels or byfield labels. . . . Sample sentences in italics {may be} included. Representative inflected forms of irregular and orthographic changing verbs are entered separately if they fall more than five lines away from their infinitive in alphabetical order. Additional grammatical information is provided by referring the user to specific paragraphs of introductory grammar sections or to verb charts." (Mod Lang J)
