Harper Dictionary of Foreign Terms


From the well known (plus a change, plus c'est la mme chose) to the not so familiar (amor de nio, agua en cestillo), The Harper Dictionary of Foreign Terms defines more than 15,000 foreign words and phrases, from more than fifty languages, that have entered into English. Drawing on art, music, literature, cooking, philosophy, diplomacy, fashion, law, and countless other subjects, and on languages from ancient Greek to modern Russian and from Arabic to Zulu, here are phrases and words that have found a place in our own language or visit us from time to time. With its full English index, the dictionary is equally useful for teachers, students, travelers, diplomats, and secretaries. Le mot juste for the right person.
