For those who work and play with words, this reference defines foreign words and phrases that permeate spoken and written English. Definitions identify the language of origin, give a literal translation and tell what the word or phrase means, tell what field it is usually used in, and give examples of proper usage through quotations from recent scholarship and journalism. Each word in a phrase is defined; and so is the phrase. Useful for lawyers, physicians, academics, journalists, and word lovers. Paper edition (423-1), $29.95. Annotation c.
