TitleCzech Idiom Dictionary
AbstractThe Dictionary of Czech idioms is a project of many years' duration which has now resulted in three published volumes (the fourth and final volume is under preparation). Both in its size (containing some 16 000 entries) and design it is rather unique: following descriptions of grammatical and semantic as well as pragmatic features it includes sections giving synonyms, antonyms and other related expressions, information on etymology and equivalents in English, German, French and Russian. Moreover, all of the idioms covered in each volume are also grouped semantically into a parallel semantic dictionary (register).
