- A Touch Of Realism The thick, tantalizing aroma of roasted coffee nipped at the tip of my nose just seconds before the old faithful alarm released its high pitch sound through its tiny top speaker. Wiping away the grit of last night’s sleep, the bright white sunrays blinded me momentarily as I slung my arm like an elephant trunk along the top of the alarm and searched for the snooze button.

- Очень давно, почти 200 лет тому назад, французский библиофил и писатель Шарль Нодье не то с удивлением, не то с гордостью заметил: «Мы живем в эпоху словарей» Очевидно, и к счастью, эта эпоха еще не завершилась Напротив, наблюдается устойчивый рост как общего тиража словарей, так и их тематического разнообразия И кроме того, перефразируя Нодье, наш современник имеет повод сказать: «Мы живем в эпоху психологических словарей»
