Spanish accounts for more than half of all foreign language courses taught in American schools.
The Firefly Spanish/English Visual Dictionary shows graphically what other dictionaries can only describe in words. This new edition features updated terms and illustrations for the very latest common usages of both English and Spanish.
Each keyword or phrase is connected to a detailed and annotated full-color illustration, making identification quick and accurate. Spanish terms are identified by gender, and there are two extensive indexes, one English and another in Spanish, that make it quick and easy to find a term in either language.
The book covers 600 subjects that are organized into 17 color-coded sections:
Jean-Claude Corbeil is a consultant and expert in linguistic planning with a worldwide reputation in the fields of comparative terminology and sociolinguistics.
Ariane Archambault is a specialist in applied linguistics who taught foreign languages before becoming a terminologist and editor of dictionaries.
Illustrated with precise drawings in color, this excellent reference presents an encyclopedia of objects from the manmade and natural world with their names presented in English and Spanish. The parts of the objects are clearly identified in each drawing; readers learn all the parts of anatomy, for example, of humans, insects, and animals; or all the parts of Greek temples, Egyptian pyramids, and high-speed trains. The material is clearly organized by category.
