Excerpt from The Learner's Russian-English Dictionary
There has long been a need for a dictionary designed especially for the English-speaking student who seeks to gain active mastery of Russian. Such a student needs much more than the one or two synonyms, sporadically supple... mented by idiomatic expressions, that are found in most foreign language dictionaries. He needs detailed indications about how each Russian word is in¿ected and about its accentuation in the various in¿ected forms. He also needs to be told as much as possible about the usage of the different words, for words in one language are only too often used quite differently than their nearest synonyms in a second language. Information of this type has hitherto been available only in multivolume dictionaries, which are expensive, hard to handle, and, moreover, not being compiled with an English speaking user in mind, frequently fail to discuss difficulties that would be encountered by such a user.
