    About A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers. From one of our most important contemporary Chinese authors: a novel of language and love that tells one young Chinese woman’s story of her journey to the West—and her attempts to understand the language, and the man, she adores. The Almawrid usually gives a number of words for a definition, and one, maybe two, or none of the words acutally meant what they were supposed to mean. Because of this, many of the students ordered The Concise Oxford English-Arabic Dictionary. It is very accurate.

    This invaluable dictionary clarifies and explains words and phrases spanning a wide range of fields, from law and music to philosophy and cuisine. 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. Based on The Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology, the principal authority on the origin and development of English words, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Etymology contains a wealth of information about the English language and its history. Find out where the words 'bungalow' and 'assassin' came from, what 'nice' meant in the Middle Ages and much more.

      Containing over 8, entries, this dictionary is the authoritative guide to foreign words and phrases used in contemporary British and American English. Drawn from over 40 languages, entries provide details of the history of each word or phrase, including language of origin, any original spelling, and its sense and use in s: 5. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Current English by H. W. Fowler. Publisher: The Clarendon Press ISBN/ASIN: BVAXVI Number of pages: Description: This is the edition of this book, which in its own province and on its own scale uses the materials and follows the methods by which the Oxford editors have revolutionized lexicography.
