    Russian-English Dictionary of Idioms
    Book Description:

    This is the most innovative, comprehensive, and scholarly bilingual dictionary of Russian idioms available today. It includes close to 14,000 idioms, set expressions, and sayings found in contemporary colloquial Russian and in literature from the nineteenth century to the present. The Russian idioms are provided with many English equivalents to render idioms in various contexts. Illustrative examples are cited to show how the idioms are used in context. Each entry also contains a grammatical description of the idiom, a definition-an innovative feature for a bilingual dictionary-and stylistic and usage information. A most notable part of the work is the alphanumeric index that makes finding the right expression very easy.
