From reviews of earlier Oxford-Duden Dictionaries: "Proof that a picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words."--Library Journal. "An extremely valuable reference work."--Journal of the American Translators Association. "Marvelous.... An excellent supplement to the standard usage bilingual dictionaries."--American Reference Books Annual. The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dutch/English Dictionary--the newest addition to this highly acclaimed series--provides a unique reference that students and general users will find both fascinating and easy to use. Based on the premise that certain kinds of information can be conveyed more readily by pictures than by definitions, the Dictionary organizes vocabulary by topic along with detailed illustrations of the various technical processes, objects, or machines involved. Approximately 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects--from astronomy to supermarkets, automobiles to swimming, ballet to plants--and define more than 28,000 objects or activities. In addition, the volume contains full alphabetical indexes, in English and in Dutch, so the Dictionary can be used effectively by speakers of either language. The result is a dictionary that readers will prize for its ease of use and for the accuracy of its illustrations.Pheby, John is the author of 'Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dutch and English Dictionary', published 1987 under ISBN 9780198641599 and ISBN 0198641591.
