Archaeology Field Dictionary (Paperback)
English-Russian-English (Big Version)
The novelty of this publication lies primarily in its concept: the dictionary is aimed for practical use during fieldwork, which is to say direct communication with other scholars. Accordingly, the author's aim was to select and include in the dictionary terms that are most widely used in the practical language of archaeologists. The dictionary also contains words that are absolutely necessary for communication in the field, such as names of tools, human bones, and materials, as well as popular archaeological jargon. The structure of the dictionary is similar to that of phrase books, in that it helps the user not only find the translation of a term, but also a phonetic transcription and pronunciation. This is the larger version of the pocket dictionary of the same name.
