Summary
  • "Ralph Waldo Emerson once described the English language as "the sea which receives tributaries from every region under heaven." Today more than ever, we English speakers sprinkle our writings and everyday conversations with words and phrases devised from other languages. The Facts on File Dictionary of Foreign Words and Phrases, Second Edition clarifies and explains more than 45,000 of these terms and expressions, covering a wide range of fields, from law and music to philosophy and cuisine. Existing entries have been revised and updated, and more than 500 new entries have been added to this addition."
  • "Entries include pronunciations in American English, parts of speech and other relevant grammatical information, languages of origin, concise definitions, examples of use, and etymological backgrounds. Entertaining and authoritative, The Facts on File Dictionary of Foreign Words and Phrases, Second Edition is a valuable resource for students, writers, and language lovers alike."--BOOK JACKET
