Format: Paperback
Quite a useful dictionary of idiomatic sayings. Probably more useful when you are reading Italian than writing it. It is by no means comprehensive, and does not include proverbial sayings to any great extent. The small grammar section seems redundant. There is a good index both for key words in Italian and an index of common English expressions. All-in-all, a useful addition to a dictionary, though good dictionaries do include idiomatic expressions and are probably more comprehensive.

This book has a detailed list of Italian idioms and an index of English ones which cross refer to the relevant Italian idiom. Very useful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Certainly this book contains thousands of Italian phrases and idioms, but does not seem to show which are common phrases in everyday use ,which are obsolete ,which are rude or not used in polite society, so for me it is of limited use.
