The dictionary of choice by Gabriel Garcia Marquez Moliner wrote, with her bare hands, the most complete, most useful, most diligent and most amusing dictionary of the Castilian language . In this updated and revised 3rd edition two volume dictionary, we find important updates to the content and structure that allow for an easier use. Most notable are the 90,000+ entries, 190,000 meanings and sub-meanings, an updated block of synonyms, revised botanical and zoological appendix and the inclusion of additional appendixes. It also includes typographical changes to help during the reading or consulting process.
This new edition has over 12,000 new entries compared to the last one and it is due to the cultural changes that the world has gone through. New entries like the words internet , e-mail , blog , chat , and computer are examples of the need for a revised version of such an important work in the Spanish language. Even though the dictionary is based on Spanish from Spain, it is filled with new words adapted from the English language.
Even though Mara Moliner based her research on the Real Academia Espanola Dictionary, she enriched the Diccionario del uso del espanol with terms used on an everyday basis in the streets or in Media. Hence, it includes entries and expressions that are not found in the Real Academia Espanola Dictionary.
