Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While not as comprehensive as I would have hoped, this dictionary of the more commonly used foreign words and phrases in English writing and conversation today is helpful on many counts. With the Oxford Press imprimatur, one can be certain the scholarship is sound and authoritative and the book is well organized, of a handy size and easy to use. Unlike many paperback references, it is printed on good paper, the type is crisp and clear and of a good size (no squinting required!). Physically the book is reader friendly and "built" to hold up under frequent/frantic flipping and searching(i.e., under the pressure of "deadline rush"). Overall, a worthy purchase and a nice addition to any hardworking wordsmith's reference shelf.

I speak and write only English, but sometimes find foreign words and phrases useful in writing, as a way to emphasize a point. To do this one has to be mindful of making sure what the foreign phrase really means. The Oxford Dictionary of Foreign Words and Phrases is a very useful reference.
