    A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish has been fully revised and updated, including over 500 new entries, making it an invaluable resource for students of Spanish.

    Based on a new web-based corpus containing more than 2 billion words collected from 21 Spanish-speaking countries, the second edition of A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish provides the most expansive and up-to-date guidelines on Spanish vocabulary. Each entry is accompanied with an illustrative example and full English translation.

    The Dictionary provides a rich resource for language teaching and curriculum design, while former CD content is now available to access at www.routledge.com/9781138686540 as support material to provide the full text in a tab-delimited format ideally suited for use by corpus and computational linguistics.

    With entries arranged both by frequency and alphabetically, A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish enables students of all levels to get the most out of their study of vocabulary in an engaging and efficient way.
