The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary Summary

The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary by Marie-Helene Correard

In The Oxford Hachette French Dictionary, two of the world's leading dictionary publishers have teamed to provide a groundbreaking new bilingual resource. Drawing on two ten-million-word databases of current French and English, The Oxford Hachette is a completely new work, offering a fresh approach to bilingual dictionaries. The result is a lexicon of unprecedented scope and utility, providing thoroughly up-to-date information on all aspects of French and English.
The Oxford Hachette is the product of an intensive research project by two expert teams of native speakers, one working in French and the other in English. Vocabulary, meaning, usage, and grammar have all been freshly reassessed to make this the most current and authoritative dictionary available today. Scientific, literary, and technical terminology--along with general and idiomatic vocabulary-- appear to a degree of completeness not found in any other bilingual dictionary. And extensive guidance to the way words and phrases are actually used make it as convenient as it is comprehensive. Here are just a few of the features that make The Oxford Hachette French Dictionary the finest French lexicon to date:
* More than 350,000 words and phrases--more than any other French dictionary
* Over 500,000 translations
* Thousands of sample sentences to illustrate meaning and usage
* Complete coverage of North American and European English and French
* Extended treatment of grammatically complex words
* Usage boxes that address nationalities, sports, forms of address, and more
* Ninety pages of guidance to self-expression in each language --from letter-writing to colloquial speech to advertising
* Numerous appendices on national governments the European community, and more
Many bilingual French dictionaries available today are largely based on aging volumes, with a few new words added to decades-old entries. The Oxford Hachette French Dictionary marks a dramatic new entry in the field, providing a completely new lexicon of French and English as actually spoken and written in today's world.

The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary Reviews

"A stellar source."--Library Journal
"The Oxford-Hachette has such extras as four maps (England, France, North America, Europe) inside front and back covers, a section on French and English correspondence and ads, verb tables, and explanatory flowcharts of the French, English, and U.S. Constitutions, and of the European Union. But its
primary innovation is the clain that the selection of meanings and contextual examples is 'corpus-based, ' yielding a 'consensus view of how a word behaves; twenty examples of a particular usage from twenty persons are much more important than twenty examples from the same person."--French Reviews
"Excellent addition of new vocabulary, correspondence, maps, and petites annonces. Definitely a feature I would recommend for the upper division writing class I teach."--Cheney Crow, University of Texas
"A treasure which comes at a bargain price....There is no other general bilingual French-English dictionary so authoritative and so current."--American Translators Association Chronicle
"I found the dictionary eminently useful: clear, accessible, and up to date. The inserts on special difficulties were well-conceived and always to the point. The new dictionary is likely to become a standard reference to students and lovers of the French language at all levels of
competency."--Steven Ungar, Professor of French and Comparative Literature, The University of Iowa
"Extremely reasonably priced, user-friendly, up-to-date dictionary with a particularly useful correspondence section. My first impression is that this supersedes all others at present on the market."--G.T. Harris, Professor of Modern Languages, Salford University
"Good for studentsworking with up-to-date texts and journals, with helpful hints on grammar or syntax in the boxes. Layout of dictionary items is excellent and examples are well chosen and translated. Excellent value for the money."--L.C. Brook, University of Birmingham
"Clear presentation (clearer than Collins), excellent central section on correspondence....Good section on verbs at end--well presented."--M. Lang, Heriot-Watt University
"Outstanding! Very up to date and exhaustive in coverage. I like the 'correspondence' examples especially. I will recommend over other dictionaries."--David L. Gobert, Southern Illinois University
"Extremely usable, informative, up-to-date. Provides a valuable and affordable research and study tool. Combines standard dictionary format with innovative, easy-to-use new features." --Daniel Brewer, University of Minnesota, Associate Professor of French
