The essence of any language lies not in its timehonored dictionaries, but in its slang. Streetwise Italian Dictionary/Thesaurus provides Italian students with today’s most accurate, accessible, and up-to-date reference to current Italian slang and idiomatic expressions. More than 2,500 terms and expressions are conveniently arranged into alphabetical topics, and then―unlike most resources of its type―marked for register to prevent the embarrassment of inappropriate usage.
Extensive example sentences, together with their English translations, provide helpful context. Valuable for all, but particularly those planning travel to Italy, this comprehensive reference reveals the true language of Italy.
Note: the book is not original format (converted or so I think) – but still very good usable.
