This is the largest, most comprehensive, and by far the most up-to-date dictionary providing SerboCroatian equivalents of the English lexicon, including nearly 60,000 English headwords and 100,000 phrases, idioms, and collocations. It is the only bilingual dictionary giving phonetic transcription of both the American and British pronunciations for all headwords and consistently covers American English as well as British English, drawing attention to differences wherever they occur. It provides thorough treatment of English grammar and idiomatic usages. The new edition includes a large number of neologisms, such as air bag, artificial intelligence, daisy-wheel printer, debug a program, exit poll, floppy disk, greenhouse effect, halfway house, etc. The dictionary is the best available guide for speakers of SerboCroatian who are learning English at any level, and for speakers of English who are studying SerboCroatian at an advanced level. Professional translators have called earlier editions of this work and its companion volume 'the ultimate authority'.

"The Benson dictionaries...have long been recognized as outstanding achievements in the field of bilingual Slavic lexicography...they accomplished the nearly impossible task of codifying two languages, each of which has significant variants." William W. Derbyshire, Slavic and East European Journal
