About the Authors
  • This is the largest and most comprehensive dictionary providing SerboCroatian equivalents of the English lexicon, including nearly 60,000 English headwords and 100,000 phrases, idioms, and collocations. It is the only bilingual dictionary showing the accents of all headwords and forms. The vocabulary represents the present-day speech of educated speakers and of the daily press. The dictionary pays special attention to the differences between the Eastern variety of SerboCroatian (with Belgrade as its centre) and the Western variety (with Zagreb as its centre). The Bosnian variety (with Sarajevo as its centre) shares features of other varieties. The English defining vocabulary clearly distinguishes between American and British English. No other dictionary describes the major varieties of SerboCroatian and of English. The new edition includes a large number of neologisms, including essential computer terms. The dictionary is the best available guide for speakers of SerboCroatian who wish to learn to express themselves in correct, idiomatic English, and for speakers of English who are learning SerboCroatian at any level.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The Benson dictionaries....have long been recognized as outstanding achievements in the field of bilingual Slavic lexicography....they accomplished the nearly impossible task of codifying two languages, each of which has significant variants." William W. Derbyshire, Slavic and East European Journal
