Phrasal Verbs Dictionary

According to The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, a phrasal verb is a “verbal idiomatic word that consists of a verb and an adverb (for example, break down), or a verb and a preposition (for example, see to)”. Starting from this assumption, we can consider phrasal only the verb which, in conjunction with an adverb or a preposition, changes the basic meaning becoming idiomatic and acquiring a new and different semantic valence.

The app Hoepli Phrasal Verbs Dictionary by Fernando Picchi is a comprehensive guide to using and understanding English phrasal verbs. For each phrasal verb, various Italian translations are provided, which faithfully or extensively reproduce the meaning, further clarified by a wide range of examples, which also illustrate the use.

In addition to the index, where it is possible to automatically find the entries matching the characters you type, the app allows you to search for specific phrasal verbs. The Glossary option allows you to search for Italian verbs translated through an English phrasal verb, while the Full Text option allows you to search for Italian and English terms within all dictionary entries. To narrow the search scope, the Categories option lets you select specific categories (for example, anatomy, botany, policy, etc.).

Dizionario dei Modi di dire

An interesting app from Edigeo for all those interested of the most curious aspects of the spoken language. Like all living languages, Italian constantly takes in new idioms; some of them will gain ground, others remain confined to specific sectors or jargon, others quickly disappear. All of them, however, constitute a true mirror of their times.

In addition to the more traditional and ancient idioms and expressions, the dictionary includes more recent idioms deriving from journalese, political and legal jargon and from the world of cinema and television.

Beside being a useful reference tool, this app is also an interesting and enjoyable method for finding out the sometimes unpredictable relationship between spoken language and the history, culture and lifestyle of the Italian society where it originated.

The app’s interface allows you to search the subject index, to search within the phrases and idioms, and also full-text.

American Slang Dictionary

The app of the American Slang Dictionary by Roberto Cagliero and Chiara Spallino is an excellent reference tool for those who need to understand American slang. During the last decades, through movies and TV, slang has entered everyday language and has become an integral part of the American language system. This dictionary provides the most comprehensive and updated reference to quickly meet the needs of translators, cinephiles, advertisers, music enthusiasts, journalists, and anyone facing the need to understand the everyday and ever-changing language spoken in the USA.

Special attention has been paid to give a comprehensive description of the headwords, of their different submeanings and synonyms. Particular attention has also been paid to the tagging of terms with special labels, such as IT, hip-hop and hipster culture, politics, sport, African-American expression, and so on, as to make it easy for the reader to quickly understand where the expression comes from and in what context it is used. Moreover, the dictionary includes many words and expressions used in what is usually called “acro-speak” (the tendency to speak with acronyms and abbreviations, first originated in American English and now spread throughout Europe), cases of antiphrasis (the use of a word or phrase in a way that is opposite of what it really means) and many new words created to describe particular historical events.

The app interface allows you to search the index entries, in the translations and even to make a full-text search selecting one of the provided usage labels.
