SPANISH IDIOMS. Collected by S. C. Becker and F. Mora. Boston: Ginn & Co.


Any one who attempts to read Alarcon, Valera, Valdes or the writers of village stories, finds how idiomatic modern Spanish is, and how little there hitherto has been to help him understand the idioms.


This collection of ten thousand idioms is therefore a much needed aid to the study of Spanish in its classic, as well as in its vigorous, present phase. The idioms are well classified, and ably translated.
