A French-English Vocabulary in Geology and Physical Geography

Nature volume 131, page 604 (29 April 1933) | Download Citation



THIS vocabulary contains between four and five thousand words. Most of them are either technical terms or words in common use which have special technical or colloquial meanings. The inclusion of the English equivalents of a number of unfamiliar place names adds to the usefulness of the vocabulary. An appendix contains a comparative table of English and Continental stratigraphical terms. The lack of such a glossary as this, devoted especially to geology and its allied sciences, has long been apparent. It should prove invaluable to many English readers of French works on geology and geography.
