MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Word-Book is just as remarkable but in this case, it is remarkable for the amazing detail that is presented. Again, the Motoring section would have come in very handy many years ago when I broke down in France and the mechanic did his best to explain that a 'rotule' had broken and I also had problems with an 'amortisseur.' It's not often you come across 'la cremaillere' (steering rack) either though, again, it would have helped me in Morocco after an encounter with a large stone. H-T-R-'s Foreword stresses that the Word-Book meets the need for 'the real things we see, do, read about, and talk about in the everyday life of this strenuous, practical and mechanised age' (p.vii). Planes, boats and trains are all there, as are the post and telephone. Television and computers make no appearance, of course, but just about everything else is present in this handy paperback.'[ - Elsevier SYSTEM MAGAZINE (2010), Robert Vanderplank, Director, Language Centre, University of Oxford]. -- 'It is a book unique of its kind, and if anybody who has occasion ever to speak French is content to do without it, then he is either a perfect French scholar - or else very conceited!'[ - TRUTH MAGAZINE (1929)].
