Now available for the first time in flexible covers, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Japanese & English Dictionary provides parallel English and Japanese word-lists containing 28,000 items for each language. Based on the premise that pictures can more clearly convey certain kinds of information, the dictionary presents a list of vocabulary relating to a subject together with a picture illustrating that subject.
Each double-page spread links the words by number to the picture situation drawn from everyday life. Approximately 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects in the fields of science, medicine, technology, industry, commerce, and arts and leisure, including astronomy, automobiles, swimming, supermarkets, nuclear energy, and much more. Both English and Japanese vocabulary appear on the same page for easy use. It also provides fully alphabetized indexes in both languages which refer the reader not only to the various subjects and contexts in which a word is used but also to the correct translation and vocabulary of an entire subject.
An essential reference for general readers, students, translators, travelers, and business people, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Japanese & English Dictionary serves as a valuable supplement to English-Japanese and Japanese-English dictionaries.
