This is an exhaustive compendium of some 1,000 words and phrases from twenty different languages that are used in English. This is a language which is rich in foreign infusions, thanks to the many invasions that have enlivened the history of our island. As a result, what we know today as English is far from the language of the Angles. From the time of Shakespeare down to the present day, the English language has always profited from foreign contacts resulting in contributions from across the globe. This dictionary presents a selection of those foreign terms now used in English but that are neither on the one hand Anglicized nor on the other merely pedantic. Never again need you rack your brain for the mot juste. Simply consult this dictionary to discover the perfect piece de resistance to dazzle your audience.
