  7. From Russian Into English (Second Edition)

    Lynne Visson

    From Russian Into English (Second Edition)

    "This is the only text that actually teaches the student how to cope with practical Russian-English interpretation and translation problems which are becoming ever more important in today's global village. All those to whom I have recommended the first edition have found it a highly useful if not indispensable tool, and this revised and expanded version will be welcomed by advanced students of Russian as well as future interpreters and translators. Dr. Visson is to be commended for her emphasis on the importance of using correct and appropriate English equivalents for a broad range of Russian formal and informal colloquial expressions."
