New to this Edition:
The fourth edition of the Oxford Russian Dictionary is an invaluable text for any serious student of Russian, or any Russian native speaker learning English.
This edition also contains many enhancements, including new supplementary material with a correspondence section, grammar help, and extra sections on the pronunciation of Russian and English.
The text has also been updated with hundreds of new words - in both the English and Russian sides of the dictionary - especially important given changes in language and culture over the last few years. These new words mean that the Oxford Russian Dictionarycontinues to be the leader in its field as the most comprehensive, up-to-date Russian dictionary available.
The dictionary is also more accessible for Russian speakers, with the addition of contextualizations on the Russian-English side to help users select the most appropriate translation. There is an extensive guide to English grammar, written in Russian, and the Russian native speaker who wishes to use or understand American English is well catered for.
Review from previous edition
Visually different, in that there are now three columns per page rather than two, and headwords appear in a new, bolder, and somewhat larger font. The practical result is that one now finds words faster and with greater ease. - Forum for Modern Language Studies
An enormous amount of lexicographic resourcefulness invested in the dictionary's macro- and microstructure, a very high degree of technological sophistication. - The International Journal of Lexicography
