The "Oxford Russian Minidictionary" is a handy yet extremely comprehensive reference work, designed for students of both Russian and English, as well as for tourists and business people. This new edition has been updated to include the latest familiar terms in areas such as computing and business.
The student of Russian is aided by the provision of inflected forms where these cause difficulty, and the indication of the stressed syllable of every Russian word as well as changes in stress. The student of English is helped by the provision of phonetic transcriptions of English entries and a table of English irregular verbs at the back of the book.
A completely new feature of this edition is the Phrasefinder, located in the centre of the dictionary and providing essential words and phrases for everyday use, grouped together according to topic and covering subjects such as travel, food and drink, shopping, using the telephone, and finding overnight accommodation.
