Description

All languages are characterized by the regular cooccurrence of certain words; for example, we say in English, tall building but high mountain. These recurrent combinations or collocations are peculiar to each individual language and cannot be predicted by a learner of that language. There are thousands of striking collocational differences between English and Russian, which are of vital importance to language learners and translators. The REDVC lists Russian verbal collocations and translates them into English. Whenever possible, corresponding English collocations are used in the translations. The REDVC lists grammatical collocations (verb + prep., verb + specific case(s)), lexical collocations (verb + adverb) and various types of miscellaneous verbal phrases, including important idioms and figurative expressions. The REDVC makes every effort to describe contemporary Russian, and a large number of illustrative examples were taken from the current Russian press. However, to provide an adequate description of the Russian used during the Soviet era, some obsolete political expressions are included as well. This dictionary is intended for English-speaking learners of Russian and Russian-speaking learners of English, both at intermediate and advanced level. It will also prove indispensable to translators of both languages.
