Using Italian Synonyms
Author: Howard Moss, Vanna Motta
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book enables students who have already developed a basic competence in Italian to broaden and improve their vocabulary and choose among words with similar meanings. It is the first book of Italian synonyms to be produced with the needs of English speakers in mind. All entries are accompanied by examples of usage and are graded to indicate their level of formality, and there are two indexes allowing users to locate words in Italian or English. This is an essential reference for intermediate and advanced students and teachers of Italian.
‘The layout and presentation of Using Italian Synonyms is clear and uncluttered, making it an easily accessible text … this is possibly the most comprehensive volume of its kind. Its value lies not only in the fact that it provides far more information than will normally be found in a dictionary but also it is more useful to English-speaking students than existing collections of Italian synonyms … The concept of the volume is original, and it fills a long-yawning gap in the market of Italian language reference texts.’ Tuttitalia
