A new, and dramatically improved, three-pronged approach to learning Spanish vocabulary
The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary is much, much more than a Spanish vocabulary reference! This unique and complete resource combines three complementary approaches to vocabulary building—cognates, root families, and suffixes—to instantly increase word familiarity and aid memorization.
Whether for active face-to-face communication or passive comprehension of written or spoken words, an in-depth knowledge of vocabulary is the key to foreign language mastery. The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary makes acquiring this mastery simpler and more straightforward than ever before by providing:
An extensive thematic list of Spanish cognates and an alphabetic glossary of Spanish root families—both with more than 14,000 entries
A comprehensive listing of the 130 most common Spanish suffixes, with 4,000 common examples
A frequency index listing the 5,000 most frequently used words in Spanish
An alphabetic index cross-referencing every entry in the root, suffix, and frequency sections

| The easiest way to add more than 30,000 words to your Spanish vocabulary!
You know the basics of Spanish, but if you really want to develop your language skills, you need to have a larger cache of Spanish words that you are comfortable using in conversation or in writing. The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary is a remarkably effective tool that will help you add thousands of words to your Spanish repertoire by organizing them into logical groupings, making memorization a snap.
The 30,000 Spanish vocabulary terms are divided into the following sections:
Cognates: These words are similar in Spanish and English, making them the easiest to learn. This section contains 14,000 cognates thematically arranged into twenty key topics.
Root families: Another easy way to expand your vocabulary is to become familiar with related word families that have the same root. This section contains 14,000 terms grouped into 2,200 root categories.
Suffixes: More than most languages, Spanish relies on suffixes to denote parts of speech and convey nuances of meaning. This section contains 4,600 terms grouped into 130 of the most common Spanish suffixes.
The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary also includes a Frequency Table listing the 5,000 most commonly used words in Spanish and an Alphabetical Index cross-referencing every entry in the root, suffix, and frequency sections.
Whether for school, business, travel, or just for fun, The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary will give you the major boost in vocab you need!
