Spanish Idioms with Their English Equivalents, Embracing Nearly Ten Thousand Phrases free pdf Excerpt from Spanish Idioms With Their English Equivalents, Embracing Nearly Ten Thousand Phrases English is the native tongue of one of the compilers of this collection of idioms, Spanish that of the other, and each of them is familiar with both languages. Only by such co-operation could results of any considerable value have been attained. An idiom is a phrase stamped by the usage of a language with a signification other than its grammatical or logical one. Our effort has been to bring together as many of the idioms to be met with in literary and conversational Spanish as possible, but not to include the technical phraseology of the professions and trades, or mere vulgarisms. These lines are not always easy to draw. Nautical terms, for example, often appear in very light literature, most of which would certainly also be set down in a technical dictionary. Many such may be found in the following pages. The more abstruse terminology of the law, on the other hand, seldom makes its way into belles-lettres or into conversation, and is excluded. The distinction between admissible slang, or homely phraseology, and downright vulgarisms is also far from sharp, and depends more or less upon circumstances. We have omitted some phrases which, though they appear in literature, have 110 business there. Many of the idiomatic phrases are proverbs, but proverbs not containing idioms are excluded. The method employed in compilation was as follows: "El Novisimo Diccionario de la Lengua Castellana, por una Sociedad de Literatos" (which is founded upon the Academy's Dictionary, with additions), and "El Nuevo Diccionario Ingles-Espanol, y Espanol-Ingles, por J. M. Lopez, E. R. Bensley, y otros," were carefully read through from beginning to end, and the numerous idioms cited in illustration of the use of words were extracted.
