An idiom is a group of words the actual meaning of which cannot easily be predicted from the specific meanings of the component words. Both the English and Russian languages are highly idiomatic. The use of idioms is natural to the speakers of a particular language, but has less or even no meaning to the speakers of another language. However, in any colloquial language there are also a host of overlapping idiomatic expressions, proverbs, phrases, and sayings which stretch the idiom definition. Moreover, there are often alternative words for certain words in an idiom, some idioms have more than one meaning, and extensive groupings have been made under certain major verbs and nouns. All these variations are given in this dictionary. This volume contains the most comprehensive dictionary of English to Russian and equivalent Russian to English idioms available worldwide today. There are in total about 10,000 entries of different idioms, but many have several alternatives in their groupings, which makes the overall total several times that number.

This dictionary contains 2,375 Russian sayings and proverbs and their English counterparts. Variants of each saying are included, and careful attention is given to the differences in British and American versions. For example, the Russian saying that is interpreted as “Children behave in a childish way, and they cannot be expected to act like grown-up people,” is first given in Russian (in the Cyrillic alphabet) and then in English, and is then followed by the nearest English-language equivalent sayings in Britain and the United States: “Young colts will canter” (British) and “Boys will be boys” (American). The proverbs and sayings are arranged alphabetically by the first Russian word (in the Cyrillic alphabet) and are cross-referenced so the reader can find analogous Russian versions of English sayings. There is a keyword index for each language (one in English, one in Russian in the Cyrillic alphabet), which allows the reader to find a proverb or a saying without knowing the first word. Proverbs and sayings are current and include those popular in both spoken Russian and literature. The prefatory matter is in both English and Russian, for readers who have a command of either language.
