Book Description

Ever wanted to call someone a 'big shot' or 'hick' in Spanish, or wondered how to say 'Let's pig out' or 'Don't give me a hard time'? And what's going on if a Spaniard 'hallucinates in colour' (alucina en colores) or if a Mexican 'throws an eye-taco' (echa un taco de ojo)? This book has all the answers and more, contained within 5,000 current idiomatic terms and slang expressions - all conveniently grouped in an A-Z thematic arrangement. "Streetwise Spanish Dictionary/Thesaurus" is a uniquely user-friendly guide, designed for reference, for browsing, and as a learning tool.Thesaurus contains almost 150 general categories or themes. Regional markers indicate countries or regions of use for every entry. Numerous example sentences with their translations provide context. Cartoons add a touch of humour. Short articles highlight specific linguistic or cultural usages. Self-test sections allow you to work on your active colloquial vocabulary. Spanish-English dictionary cross-references all 5,000 terms and expressions included in the thesaurus. Whether you're a student, teacher, businessperson, or tourist, you'll enjoy enriching your Spanish with the vibrant language usually understood by native speakers alone. But be warned - the Spanish language is one of the world's richest, and some expressions are particularly colourful!
