Now available in paperback editions, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries provide parallel English and foreign word lists containing 29,000 items for each language. Based on the premise that pictures can more clearly convey certain kinds of information, these dictionaries present a list of vocabulary relating to a subject together with a picture illustrating that subject.
Each double-page spread links the words by number to the picture situation drawn from everyday life; 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects in the fields of science, medicine, technology, industry, commerce, and arts and leisure, including astronomy, automobiles, swimming, supermarkets, nuclear energy, nightclubs, and much more. Both English and foreign words appear on the same page for easy use. The dictionaries also provide fully alphabetized indices in both languages which refer the reader not only to the various subjects and contexts in which a word is used, but also to the correct translation and vocabulary of the entire subject.
An essential reference for general readers, students, translators, travelers, and business people, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries serves as an invaluable supplement to other foreign language guides.
The new editions featured below have been completely updated and revised to include the most recent innovations in science and technology and to offer increased coverage of all major fields of reference.

The second edition of this pictorial dictionary, with more than 1,500 new items, follows in the tradition of previously published Oxford-Duden dictionaries with its comprehensive range of areas represented. Here a reader will find the easily recognized--the basic translation and drawing of a bicycle, la bicicleta--to the more specialized: the hula girl at a masked ball, la hawaiana. Each word or phrase is given first in precise Spanish, with the corresponding English in italics directly below, a system which gives non-Spanish speakers an easy entry into a new language. The book more deeply details other, more complex aspects of the language to provide easy access to more demanding new words for those who are partially bilingual--including the correct ways to pronounce complex and intricate phrasings. While the corresponding illustrations for the more than 28,000 objects represented here are basic in design, they are all clearly labeled and presented, providing the reader with the visual connection so necessary for learning a foreign language and culture.
