Well presented but necessarily limited
on 3 August 2016
I have the Duden illustrated Spanish dictionary. That is truly monumental. It covers everything from the constituent parts of a nuclear power plant, through the equipment and tools in a wide variety of workshops, exploded diagrams of vehicle engines ...
DK have presented a reasonable selection from 'ordinary life', in a sensible breakdown of categories but I was disappointed at how little I found in the 'building/plumbing/electrics' section.
I n September I will launch into the renovation of a flat in Valencia. My Spanish, especially technical Spanish to do with building work, is not good. The DK book will be no help. The Duden - about 2kgs of it - will be. But the DK will be useful in daily life, I am sure.
