The HarperCollins Italian College Dictionary is the ideal dictionary for learners of Italian. Here's why:

Easiest to use: The clear layout allows maximum ease of access and enables effective communication for educational, business, and traveling purposes. Usage levels are indicated throughout, with extensive examples to illustrate how words are used in context. Style labels identify whether a word is formal, informal, literary, or vulgar. In addition, specific meanings are clearly marked to guide the user to the correct treatment. The text also includes pronunciations of all English words using the International Phonetic Alphabet, with a full guide to Italian pronunciation and phonetics for difficult words.

Completely updated: The new edition of HarperCollins Italian College Dictionary has been completely revised and updated with thousands of new references to cover all the latest vocabulary, notes on life and culture in the Italian — and English — speaking world, and Web addresses to enable further research.

"Language in Use" supplement: This offers invaluable advice on how to express yourself in correct and idiomatic Italian, as well as detailed treatment of formal and informal correspondence, e-mail, and telephoning.
