This unique lexicon of Spanish America, includes etymologies from roots of both Hispanic and aboriginal languages To aid in the task of communication across Spanish America, all Spanish speakers, the author's belief is that nothing is better than putting in the hands of all a dictionary of Americanisms which each in turn can find those words and values , not being normal to his own geographic area. "The mission that we attach to this dictionary, moreover undeniably useful, is to strengthen the bonds of union of the entire Hispanic community in the way of comprehension. You can not bring the understandings when crossed words whose meaning is doubtful or ignored. For this reason, to make more fruitful and effective dialogue between peoples who speak the same language, you can build the best bridge that a dictionary provides." (translated from the author's Preface) A special addition to this dictionary is the extensive information of the major pre-Columbian cultures of America. This lends the work a special touch that makes it even more informational. Items of Interest: Archaeological and historical items from pre-Columbian cultures. 72.000 meanings. Historical articles on concepts of colonial Spanish America. Units of weights and measures of Spanish America. [via]
