Dictionary of German Slang and Colloquial ExpressionsBook - 2000
Travelers with intermediate-level knowledge of German, and language students on intermediate and advanced levels will value this book as a key to getting past the slang barrier and grasping German and its idioms as people actually speak the language. More than 4,000 words or colloquial expressions seldom found in standard bilingual dictionaries are listed alphabetically and defined. A phrase or short sentence is presented in German to give readers a sense of the word or expression as it is used in various contexts, and is followed with an English translation. Because of the nature of the subject matter, books in this series necessarily contain expressions that some readers will find offensive.
