Abstract:

Globalisation has reshaped the face of the world, turning the society in which we live into a multicultural one. In such a new world, there is a strong need to master the culture-specific vocabulary in the languages we speak. This book will mainly appeal to translators, interpreters, students, and other professionals that work in the cultural field or in any other field in which intercultural communication plays an essential role, and in which the communication languages are English and Romanian. The dictionary approaches the cultural aspects of today’s multicultural society from a broad linguistic perspective, focusing on several topics, such as cultural ideology, national identity, cuisine, clothing, holidays, language and sports. The general and semi-specialised vocabulary offered here is organised thematically and alphabetically. The book structure, the pairs of languages and the included thematic lists make the dictionary a unique and easy-to-use tool.
