Russian-English Dictionary of Verbal CollocationsAll languages are characterized by the regular cooccurrence of certain words; for example, we say in English, tall building but high mountain. These recurrent combinations or collocations are peculiar to each individual language and cannot be predicted by a learner of that language. There are thousands of striking collocational differences between English and Russian, which are of vital importance to language learners and translators. The REDVC lists Russian verbal collocations and translates them into English. Whenever possible, corresponding English collocations are used in the translations.

The Oxford Dictionary of Difficult WordsWe all know what the words cat and dog and mother and tree mean. What we really need is a dictionary that helps us with the tough words, like elucubrate, or demesne, or cynosure. True, a standard dictionary can bail us out when we run across a tough word at home or in a library. But we often read elsewhere--in a doctor's waiting room or on a plane, or while on vacation. What do we do then?
The Oxford Dictionary of Difficult Words is designed to meet this need.
